Application of Risk Management in Non-Financial Services Industry
Gloria Yu and Peter Matruglio
Against the backdrop of international risk management developments, turmoil in the financial markets, evolution of regulatory frameworks and increasing complexity of risks in the financial world, there is an increasingly strong need for robust risk management within companies.
Risk management straddles across all practice areas. Whilst actuaries are traditionally involved in the financial services industry, there are many untapped areas in the broader non-financial services industry. This presents enormous opportunities for the actuarial profession, and at the same time we need to develop the relevant expertise by building on our core capabilities, traditional skills and techniques, and also working with the other professions.
This presentation examines the application of risk management concepts and actuarial thinking in non-financial services industry through a practical example.
