WeiserMazars LLP has merged in Risk Management Group, an internal audit service provider in Ladera Ranch, Calif.

As part of the deal, Risk Management Group's 11 employees will join WeiserMazars' Advisory and Consulting Practice, beefing up the firm’s internal audit services for the banking industry.

"We are delighted to have such a highly respected internal auditing group joining our firm," said WeiserMazars chairman and CEO Victor Wahba in a statement. "The addition of this experienced team significantly enhances our capabilities and geographic reach, positioning our firm for further growth."

WeiserMazars, based in New York, ranked 23rd on Accounting Today’s 2016 list of the Top 100 Firms, with $171 million in annual revenue. In January, it acquired Lion & Company CPAs, a firm in Syosset, N.Y., which specializes in providing tax and consulting services to high net worth individuals and business owners in the health care, investment banking and real estate sectors (see WeiserMazars Acquires Lion & Company CPAs).

Risk Management Group dates back to 1984 and provides risk-based audit services for more than 230 financial institutions. "We look forward to becoming part of a firm which shares our high standards of client service,” said Risk Management Group CEO Robert Maslac.
