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. These enterprises seek to manage risk exposure so that, at any given time, they incur just enough of the right kind of risk – no more, no less – to effectively pursue their strategic goals. This is referred to as “optimal risk-taking.” This webinar will go through a step-by-step process to develop strong risk assessments for key areas of your institution. You will learn about developing an enterprise-wide process to conduct risk assessments in a practical, sustainable, and understandable way. You will walk away with practical tools and examples you can immediately implement.
