Why You Should Attend

Strategic Risk Management for Financial Institutions

To ensure we meet your expectations and maximise your return on training investment, we favour a classroom/workshop style set

Is strategic risk management (SRM) the same as or different from enterprise risk management (ERM)? What kinds of events or risks does one classify as strategic risks? An increasing number of boards of directors as well as management teams have been asking these questions.

Some of the key lessons that many financial institutions have learnt from recent events are that;

  • they need to clearly link strategy and risk management
  • they need to be able to identify and manage risk in a highly uncertain world.
  • they must focus risk management on creating value as well as protecting value.

This practical 12 hour virtual course provides the definition of and guiding principles for Strategic Risk Management (SGM) that directors and management teams can use to help link ERM with strategy and strategy execution. It will also enable them to focus risk management on creating and protecting value with a clear understanding of Strategic Risk Management. Additionally, it provides an understanding of the requirements needed to design and implement an appropriate Enterprise Risk Management system. Such a Risk management system covers the policies, procedures, practices, and accountability required to establish the right levels of Risk Management in compliance with current standards and other requirements for their organizations.

The course also provides an opportunity for delegates to benchmark their risk management practices against the COSO – ERM framework and learn how to implement an effective ERM system.

Pre-course questionnaire:

A detailed questionnaire will be sent to all course participants to establish exactly where the group training needs lie. The completed forms will be analysed by the course leader/trainer and followed by telephone if further clarification is required. As a result we can guarantee that the course is pitched at exactly the right level and that the issues that you regard as relevant are addressed. The course material will reflect these issues and will enable you to digest the subject matter after the event in your own time.
