Insights on Boards and Risk Management from FFIEC State Liaison Committee Chair Greg Gonzales | The Ncast Episode 9

Season 2 of the Ncast has launched! In our 9th episode of Ncast, which focuses on the key issues facing financial institutions in the governance, risk, and compliance space, we spoke with Commissioner Greg Gonzales, who serves as the Commission of the Tennessee Department of Financial Institutions. He also serves as Chairman of the State Liaison Committee that incorporates the state supervisory perspective into the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC).

This role gives him a unique vantage point of how regulatory matters are addressed at the state level as well as with the consortium of all the nation’s federal regulatory agencies.

We spoke with Commissioner Gonzales about the role of risk management and board oversight, specifically with regard to tailored regulations, the “math of things”, risk appetite and the June 2020 FFIEC guidance, and how boards should interpret exam findings.
