What's on your Mind?

 

  • Creating an effective group-wide risk governance structure which joins up the teams and processes dealing with risk. 
  • Rebuilding both internal and external stakeholder trust and confidence in risk management, identifying areas of weakness and enhancing systems and controls to facilitate growth. 
  • Operating efficiently in a capital and liquidity constrained environment.
  • Improving the assessment of portfolio credit risk and enhancing the portfolio's performance. 
  • Responding to increasing demands from regulators and new requirements on transactions, solvency, liquidity, managing customer funds and other key areas.

 

Bringing you Peace of Mind

 

We can help add value by providing industry understanding, regulatory insight and technical advice across a range of risk issues including:

 

  • Effective and integrated risk governance. 
  • Efficient liquidity and capital management, including stress testing and scaling. 
  • Enterprise risk management, risk methodologies, tools and approaches (including credit portfolio management) for banks, insurers and investment managers. 
  • Risk management and valuations related to Energy, Commodity and Derivative products. 
  • Guidance and independent reviews on regulatory reporting criteria and methods. 
  • Assistance for start-up firms looking to begin the process for regulatory authorisation.

 

Our aim is to help financial sector firms reassure their internal and external stakeholders, as well as regulators and the capital markets, that their approach to risk management works both now and in the future.

 

What's in it for you? 

 

  • Improved confidence in risk management as a platform for growth. 
  • An independent design, review and assessment of risk identification, measurement and management with knowledge transfer to staff. 
  • Meet the demands of a changing regulatory landscape including Solvency II for insurers, and Basel II for banks.
