Ours is a business of managing risk, and the professionals in these areas lead the charge in providing support, advice, consultation, oversight, and review of key areas of our business.


Our legal transaction teams perform documentation and closing functions with legal oversight, ensuring that transactions are complete, accurate, and documented within CoBank guidelines. We also employ a full team that provides legal counsel for all non-transactional matters including board relations, statutory and regulatory matters, litigation support and more. Opportunities within legal may be available for attorneys, paralegals and transaction support staff.

Risk Management

Core to our team is a group of professional analysts who work on our enterprise risk management team, looking at risk from an organization-wide perspective and creating awareness of risk management in relation to our ongoing success.

Internal Audit

The CoBank internal audit group reviews our business operations for consistency with regulations and policy. We also play a critical role in working with our partners and customers in Farm Credit, and providing assistance with their control environment needs. Likewise, our asset review staff evaluates the bank’s internal controls as related to asset quality and credit administration.


“We try to be really consultative to add value for our customers and that makes what we do fulfilling.”

Steve, Internal Audit
