Strategic Consulting

Gain fresh perspective.

When facing decisions that have the potential to impact operations, processes or the future of your institution, soliciting an objective outside opinion can be a wise investment. A third party with proven experience in your industry who may be aware of potential pitfalls, innovative solutions or best practices can help improve the outcome of any course of action you choose.

By combining our strong analytical skills, personal knowledge of your organization and extensive background in the multiple financial sectors, we’re able to provide a fresh perspective in key areas of your business.

We routinely advise clients on matters including:

  • Facilitation of business strategic planning

  • Business model transformation
  • Growth strategies
  • IT strategic planning
  • Vendor/third-party management and assessment
  • Incident response and preparedness
  • Data and analytics
  • Process automation and outsourcing
  • Strategic tax planning
  • Human resources planning
  • Succession planning

Build leadership structures that reflect the knowledge and experience needs of your institutions.


Complex risk, regulation and reporting requirements mean that the leadership of financial institutions must represent a balance of financial, legal and business expertise. HORNE helps executive teams and boards build leadership structures that establish the skills, expertise and diversity the institution and community expect.

Working closely with your team, we also help leaders answer the tough questions and spot opportunities to address your institution’s concerns. By equipping executives and boards with the data and insights to drive informed decisions, we help ensure the current and future success of your institution.
