Implementing Risk Transformation in Financial Institutions
Risk transformation can enable a financial institution to elevate risk management from a functional capability to an enterprise responsibility that permeates the entire organization. When that happens, every business, function, and individual becomes responsible for, accountable for, and capable of, recognizing and addressing the risks within their purview. Moreover, risk awareness and appropriate risk-related skills can become an integral component of every individual’s responsibilities at every level. In these ways, risk transformation can enhance the organization’s ability to implement business strategies and achieve goals while addressing risks and complying with evolving regulations.
This document is one in a series of four on the cornerstones of risk transformation:
- Governance and culture
- Business and operating models
- Data, analytics, and technology
As explained in Aligning risk and the pursuit of shareholder value: Risk transformation in financial institutions, when these cornerstone frameworks and capabilities are in place, risk management, risk governance, and regulatory compliance can be implemented in a more aligned and integrated manner.
