Enterprise Risk Management

With organisations undergoing massive change in the wake of the economic downturn, enterprise risk management has never been more important and should form a critical part of an organisation’s governance framework.  

Why does risk management matter?

As institutions seek to respond to the new regulatory and commercial challenges following the financial crisis, ERM is playing a pivotal role in improving the risk management environment. It is imperative institutions have effective systems and procedures in place to meet global regulator’s requirements for effective, accurate and timely risk management and oversight.
