Risk Consulting 

At KPMG Risk Consulting we think about risk differently. You could say that 'turning risk to advantage' is our mantra.

Amid mounting concerns about geopolitical, reputational and regulatory risks, many UK organisations are struggling to manage the threats they face. This is due to inconsistencies in the way different teams communicate, share and interpret information.

Most organisations have a good understanding of the potential hazards. However, a skill shortage, combined with a relaxed approach to ‘raising the alarm,’ is increasing the risk to business operations. Too often the raising of concerns is not encouraged. This is either because there’s no structure in place to deal with the threat or because it’s not recognised as a valuable use of time.

It’s tempting to point the finger at technology, processes or people, but the problem runs deeper. Only by creating a culture that rewards attention to risk can it ever become central to business practice. Opening up the channels between the risk team, senior management and all staff is vital. It cannot be left to chance.

Your business must be ready to respond to any serious incidents that arise

Starting in the boardroom and working across the entire organisation, we can help you identify strategic, operational, compliance, financial or reputational risks. From a regulatory breach to an act of fraud, we have the experience to help you reduce the potential damage to your business. We can also look at any business advantage that may arise from removing these threats.

Our experience shows that being risk averse is not good for business

Rather you should embed effective risk management into core decision-making. In this way it can positively affect your entire organisation. We’ll help you to make confident, well-informed choices that drive more value and profit to shareholders so your business can grow intelligently and deliver outstanding results.
