KPMG is pleased to announce the appointment of Giles Triffitt as a Risk Director in its financial risk management division. Giles will focus on advising clients on how to design a cost efficient and compliant response to the regulatory burden and how to take a more balanced approach to the cost of risk management in restructuring and running operations.
Giles joins KPMG from Royal Bank of Scotland (‘RBS’) where he was the Head of Risk Services. His team provided group wide advice on the use of risk tools to improve decision making, especially at the precise point major investment decisions were being made. These included during strategic design; the development of architectural options; managing the strategic change portfolio; the execution of large complex change programmes and the running of cost efficient operations.
Prior to this role Giles was the Head of Risk for the Operations Division in RBS where he directly managed risks and incidents and on a day-to-day basis, whilst also governing the risk of some of the Banks’ largest change projects during integration with ABN Amro.
Prior to RBS, Giles worked for PwC as Director of their UK Operational Risk team.
Karen Briggs, Partner, Head of Financial Risk Management, KPMG said: “We are delighted to welcome Giles to KPMG. His risk expertise in the banking sector and the leading edge thinking he adopts to risk and reward means that he will be able to offer sound advice to clients. Given the great regulatory burden the financial services sector finds itself under just now this will undoubtedly help clients make more balanced decisions resulting in effective risk management at an acceptable cost.”
