Financial institutions provide great value to the American economy. But that value comes with risks. Strategic-minded institutions do not strive to eliminate risk or even to minimize it – they strive to manage risk at the enterprise-wide level. They manage risk exposure so that, at any given time, they incur just enough of the right kind of risk to effectively pursue their strategic goals – no more, no less. This is called “optimal risk-taking.” This webinar will go through a step-by-step process to develop risk assessments to address key areas of your institution. Learn how to develop an enterprise-wide process to conduct risk assessments in a practical, sustainable, and easy-to-understand way. You will receive useful tools and examples that can be implemented immediately.
