Due diligence providers of field examinations announce their entry into the market on a regular basis. Who are these due diligence providers? Are they uniquely qualified to provide field examinations, do they have the experienced leadership and are they aware of the prevalence of fraud? Who knows?

Rather than contemplate whether your outsource firm has the experience or will be around in the future, Dopkins ABL Consulting Services believes that commercial lenders and field examinations managers are better served to focus on the continued growth and quality of their loan portfolio, not the intestinal fortitude of their field examination outsource firm.

Dopkins ABL Consulting specializes in performing pre-loan surveys, recurring collateral field examinations and other due-diligence procedures to the ABL industry. Available to our clients is an entire department of full-time, experienced field examiners ready to evaluate and monitor the volatile nature of your borrower’s loan collateral. We examine both formula and non-formula based credit facilities of single and/or multi-site borrowers. We will identify and highlight areas of collateral weakness, deterioration and/or abuse of loan collateral, the adequacy of the advance rates, the frequency of future examinations and provide appropriate recommendations. Our objective is to provide you, the commercial lender, with focused insight into the integrity of the loan collateral, internal controls and reporting, company management and overall operating performance.

Strategically located throughout North America in Baltimore, Boston, Buffalo, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Hartford, Jacksonville, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Miami, Pittsburgh, Portland, Raleigh – Durham and Toronto, we are able to respond quickly and minimize travel expenses to effectively perform your field examinations.

Led by Certified Fraud Examiners and licensed CPA’s, the firm also provides turnaround consulting, litigation support and expert witness services to businesses, attorneys and lenders in the area of commercial finance and corporate turnarounds. Dopkins ABL Consulting frequently conducts seminars and industry panels on field examinations, due diligence, fraud and white-collar crime.

Frustrated by poor report turnaround, inexperienced examiners or the lack of value-added information? Learn how the professionals at Dopkins ABL Consulting Services have helped asset-based lenders deal with these issues when outsourcing field examinations.
