Improving Corporate Governance and Business Performance
ERM, Risk

Enterprise Risk Management

Enterprise Risk Management goes beyond compliance and avoidance of surprises. Its value lies in better business performance and more efficient use of capital. Robust information about the company’s risk exposures and their relative weights enable taking strategic decisions that maximize opportunities within the defined risk appetite. Risk exposures would include:

  • Operational risks that are concerned with people and processes
  • Financial risks such as liquidity, interest rates and foreign exchange
  • Technology risks relating to the security of information and systems
  • Strategic risks relating to organizational expansion, business direction, regulation, brand erosion
  • Hazard risks that are normally insurable such as product liability or property damage

We can guide and assist you in developing and implementing a risk management framework that will enable identifying, assessing, quantifying, treating and monitoring the above risks.
