Bank Field Examinations

Keen Insight and Steadfast Execution

MFA has provided financial institutions with superior field examination services for more than twenty years. In that time, our firm has proven itself a dependable business partner for lenders, one that understands the challenges they face and the complex nature of their investments.

Clients rely on MFA to quickly and accurately determine the quality of borrowers’ collateral for pre-loan and existing loan situations. The results of our examinations have aided lenders in determining the amount to advance their customers, as well as the quality of their collateral and underlying earnings and cash flows.

In addition to performing traditional field examinations, we are often engaged to provide consultation on structure and borrowing base formulas, as well as for evaluation of trends in a borrower’s business. We also serve as an ideal liaison for interactions between loan officers and underwriters or a financial institution’s internal examination group.

The Standby Resource of Choice

MFA’s bank examination services are designed to supplement your credit department with standby, high-level expertise and support services. We go beyond simply providing high-level resources, responding to your needs as they arise and on a timetable that works for you. MFA’s approach is pragmatic and designed to be sensitive to each exam’s unique environment, special requirements and specific timetable. Our clients know they can tap into our expertise at any given time, secure in the knowledge that MFA will provide the insight and energy to meet their deadlines and deliver exceptional value.
