Enterprise Risk Management – Risk Culture Luncheon

June 8, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

This seminar will be a high-level introduction into the Enterprise Risk Management Roadmap, identifying seven core ERM processes and the associated interdependencies required to achieve the formation of an effective, holistic and integrated approach to ERM in a financial services context. GRI believes that the systematic application of the principles and practices embedded in this Roadmap can materially improve the overall decision quality and experience outcomes that arise in relation to the wide range of risk/return trade-offs inherent in a financial institution’s business strategy and operations.

Each of the seven learning modules are designed to help members understand and develop actionable insights and methodologies they can use.

  1. Risk Appetite
  2. Risk Identification
  3. Risk Measurement and Assessment
  4. Risk Budgeting and Actions
  5. Governance and Controls
  6. Reporting and Communications
  7. Risk Culture

The luncheon will include the following:

  • An update on the Global Risk Institute research agenda
  • Enterprise Risk Management Roadmap: An approach to enterprise risk management best practices in a financial services context
  • A deep dive into risk culture best practices

***Lunch will be provided***
