As risks rise, boards respond
A global view of risk committees
Boards of directors have been working hard to fulfill their risk oversight responsibilities in a challenging environment. Regulations are changing rapidly in most industries, and vary significantly across countries. Investors, analysts, and the public are demanding greater transparency into risk and risk management, as are creditors, counterparties, and other stakeholders. Many boards legitimately wonder not only what regulators want, but also which approaches to risk oversight actually work.
What’s risk got to do with it?
If you asked CFOs to list the major uncertainties they’ve grappled with over the past couple of years, you might get consensus on risks such as the economy, regulation, commodity pricing, and consumer demand. But, you would probably get little agreement on how they’ve factored such risks into their financial forecasts and planning.
Part of the problem is that financial planning and analysis has not changed fundamentally from the way it was done 10 years ago, despite the onslaught of new and more-strategic risks. Moreover, there still appears to be very little process integration across risk management, strategic planning, financial forecasting, and budgeting – integration often considered vital to addressing the speed and range of risks many companies face.
In this issue of CFO Insights, we discuss what still needs to be fixed in the FP&A process and introduce an analytical framework – risk-adjusted forecasting – that seeks to tame the uncertainties in that process. Read more.
With today’s heightened awareness of the need for anticipating and managing risks in an evermore dynamic and uncertain environment, boards, audit, risk and compliance committees and C-suite executives are striving to better understand the broadest range of their actual or potential risk exposures and the effectiveness of their governance, risk, and compliance infrastructure. For this reason, Deloitte Luxembourg has chosen to dedicate the third edition of their Inside magazine to the wide range of professionals involved in governance, risk management, compliance and internal audit issues.
A Corporate Governance breakdown
Exposing companies to greater risk of fraud and corruption
Internal auditors play a vital role in reducing the risk of fraud, corruption and other corporate wrongdoing. Yet, according to Deloitte’s new analysis of member survey data from The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), 62 percent or more of internal audit functions at public companies globally do not comply with all of the IIA's International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing. The situation is surprisingly similar at private companies, governmental and nonprofit entities.
