About Global Risk Institute
The Global Risk Institute (GRI) is a premier organization that defines thought leadership in risk management for the financial industry. GRI brings together leaders from industry, academia, and government to draw actionable insights on risks globally.
The organization was founded in 2011 as a result of efforts by the financial industry, the Bank of Canada and the provincial and federal governments to build capacity to manage and prevent risks within Canada’s financial institutions and to build a global profile for the industry. There were 16 founding financial institutions, with the Governments of Canada, Ontario, TD Bank Group and Manulife Financial acting as core sponsors.
We are a premier organization that defines thought leadership in risk management for the financial industry. We bring together leaders from industry, academia, and government to draw actionable insights on emerging risks.
