Moderating the live online webinar:
The financial crisis brought enterprise risk management to the forefront for many senior executives across various financial institutions and sparked complex questions about risk tolerance and risk taking. Risk management failures led to losses for financial institutions during and after the crisis, and there is growing pressure on ERM programs to add value to the overall organization.
Implementing an effective ERM approach to achieve a common understanding of risk appetite and risk tolerance across the organization can help financial institutions succeed. Such a common understanding can mitigate problems caused by inappropriate risk taking, compensation practices that might be misaligned with the institution’s risk tolerance, compliance issues and other problems associated with inappropriate employee behaviors or activities.
This free webinar is geared to help you understand the ways ERM can help financial institutions such as banks, credit unions and insurers.
