We assist our clients in managing their business risks. Every business decision entails risk and by definition risk cannot be eliminated. It can be managed, mitigated, controlled or protected against. Our risk management framework typically considers the risk appetite of the management and suggests clear strategies so as to reduce the probability of breaching downside limits as far as possible.
Typical steps in an enterprise risk management exercise involves the following:
We will handhold the client in the implementation of the recommendations and put in place a mechanism to monitor, control and manage risks.
The first step is to identify all the risks – internal and external. Measure the impact of the risks on the objectives and desired outcomes. Assess the severity and frequency of the risk event and classify them accordingly
Once the risk are identified and measured, the next step is to formulate strategies to address them. These could be strategies avoid the risk, transfer, mitigate or assume the risk
Assess the control structure and review mechanism and strengthen them. Ensure a proper information system to escalate the exceptions
Risk modelling brings together our expertise in understanding risks particularly in the counterparty risk and credit risk domains and using robust statistical methods and data to build models to facilitate meaningful insights. Our modelling tools seek to facilitate better credit profiling, customer selection, superior monitoring and providing early warning signals.
