Coming to grips with risk culture
Creating actionable intelligence
It’s becoming clear that a good risk appetite framework, grounded in the particular issues an organization and industry are facing, is a good place to start. But making that risk appetite come to life is a much bigger challenge. Organizations need to have the right people, resources, and solutions in place to ensure that their risk appetite program doesn't get derailed by the process of delivering risk analysis.
Implementation of the risk appetite should be focused on delivering the right actionable intelligence to key stakeholders, such as the business lines, senior management, and the Board. It is with this information that a true risk culture can be created.
Fostering a risk culture
Organizations seeking to create or improve their risk culture should consider the following questions:
- How do stakeholders understand risks in the context of our organization?
- Is risk appetite communicated effectively in our organization?
- Do our business units understand their risk profiles? Do they act on that knowledge?
- Does our Board feel that it is getting the right risk information?
- How could improved risk management generate improved margins for our business?
- What kind of input does the risk management function have into the formulation of business strategy?
This whitepaper explores the challenges that both organizations and regulators have faced in creating a framework to improve behavior and reduce conduct risk at financial services organizations. It also looks ahead to try and predict some important trends that are emerging around attempts by supervisors to prevent misconduct and protect customers.
When making strategic decisions about the allocation of often limited resources, boards and senior managers must consider multiple corporate objectives as well as the portfolio of investment opportunities available. Enterprise Risk and the firm’s risk appetite are also key considerations.
