Global Risk

Global Risk Institute is a preeminent source of ideas on the management of emerging risks and trends for financial services organizations


The Global Risk Institute in Financial Services is a public/private partnership. Our Board includes representatives from both the Province of Ontario and the Federal Government of Canada.

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 was an initial group of sixteen financial institutions, with the Governments of Canada, Ontario, TD Group and Manulife being the core founders.

We seek to embed rigorous oversight and governance practices in our culture with the aim of earning and retaining the trust of all of our members and other partners.
