Although Financial Services has long managed individual risks on a silo basis, Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is a relatively new discipline.

As ERM has yet to mature, there is no standard ‘text book’ consulting approach to a successful implementation - a high degree of pragmatism based on robust principles is key.

Running an effective and respected ERM function that constructively challenges the organisation rather than simply adding to overheads requires significant skill, emotional intelligence and experience. The necessary leadership is provided right from the top by the role of the Chief Risk Officer.
