About Global Risk Institute
The GRI was founded in 2011 as a result of an idea conceived by Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England and Jim Flaherty, former Canadian Minister of Finance. There were sixteen founding financial institutions, with the Governments of Canada, Ontario, TD Bank Group and Manulife Financial acting as the core architects.
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.
