Design, Analyze, Implement

The US Federal Government’s balance sheet includes more than $2 trillion in credit exposure, comprised of direct loans and guarantees delivered through hundreds of diverse programs that range from residential mortgages to farm loans to financing of renewable energy production facilities.

Since our founding, FI Consulting has been a leader in helping federal agencies implement and better manage their credit programs. Federal credit agencies hire us to help them stand up new credit programs, gain insight into portfolio performance and risk, make the most of scarce credit subsidy budgets, and comply with statutory, regulatory, and audit requirements.

Our expertise spans the complete credit program life cycle, including design, implementation, financial operations, subsidy cost estimation, and portfolio and risk management. We help agencies maximize their program impact by making informed trade-offs between policy objectives, cost, and risk.
