ACH Risk Review Service

Running a profitable ACH origination program often depends on successfully managing the inherent risks involved. In addition to the new NACHA requirement that each participating financial institution complete an ACH operations risk assessment, it is also just good business practice to complete a thorough review of your risk profile. An independent, external perspective from a trusted partner can help to properly identify areas of potential risk and provide suggestions for improvement.

The WesPay Risk Review Service provides observations from one of our AAP certified industry experts concerning your current ACH risk management program and processes as compared to those prescribed by relevant regulation and sound industry practices.

WesPay will provide a management report providing WesPay’s opinion on the areas of potential risk that can be mitigated through improved policies, procedures and increased process controls.

Benefits of using WesPay's Risk Review Services:

  • Knowledgeable and accredited ACH Professionals (AAP) will work with you and your staff to review your ACH risk profile
  • Your staff receives training while performing the risk review as the WesPay staff explains sound business practices during the process.
  • Procedures and controls that can be strengthened are identified during the course of the review.
  • A thorough risk review provides your management team with an objective, professional perspective to help guide policy decisions and day-to-day practices.
