Characteristics of Strong Risk Assessments and Tools to Monitor and Report Results


Financial Institutions provide great value to the American economy. But that value comes with risks. Risk Assessments are at the core of a strong Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Program. Therefore, developing strong risk assessments for all key areas of the financial institution is crucial. Strategic-minded institutions do not strive to eliminate risk or minimize it. They strive to manage risk at the enterprise-wide level so that they incur just enough of the right kind of risk to effectively pursue their strategic goals. This is referred to as “Optimal Risk-Taking.”

Review the characteristics of strong Risk Assessments to ensure you address key areas of your institution and discuss how to develop an enterprise-wide process to conduct Risk Assessments. Gain practical tools and examples to implement in your organization immediately while strengthening your existing Risk Assessments and creating new ones.
