    Invictus Consulting Group®, the leader in groundbreaking community bank analytics, has developed a revolutionary way of analyzing bank data, taking into consideration regulatory capital requirements, the risk profile of bank assets, interest rate sensitivity and the pro forma characteristics of a bank's asset portfolio. Invictus is the only strategic consultant for banks that considers the impact of regulatory capital requirements in every analysis we perform. Our patent-pending analytics allow banks to tell regulators and investors how capital will fare in strategic plans - whether it's organic growth, a merger or acquisition, or even a dividend payout. Our forward-looking analytics facilitate individual and relative analysis of bank capital adequacy, pro forma performance, and calculations of a bank's FreeCapital. We have pioneered methodologies that have changed how banks approach strategic planning, stress testing, capital planning, asset loan management, and mergers and acquisitions. Our unique analytics help banks define how much regulatory capital they need, which they can then use in meaningful discussions with examiners. Our M&A process is the only way a bank can assess the true value of an acquisition and understand the capital requirements of not only the target bank, but also the combined entity. We work with community bank executives and boards of directors, D&O insurers, and regulators across the U.S., continually evolving our analytics as the economy and regulations change.
