Banking and Financial Services (BFS) organizations are realizing the need for a pragmatic approach to manage a plethora of emerging risks surrounding the industry. Implementing an Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) program has become a crucial need to effectively manage regulatory pressures, and make risk-based decisions to achieve strategic and operational goals. Although banks across the world have established an ERM program, over time they have come to realize that it was not effective enough to help them address emerging risks and identify them in real-time.

What most BFS organizations look for in an ERM program is to be able to achieve faster and more transparent reporting of risks across the bank, measure and manage risks through an integrated approach, improve collaboration among teams and business lines, and help in the sustenance and growth of the organization. To accomplish this, they need to lay out a well-defined strategy and understand the underlying challenges before they set out to build an ERM program.

In this forum, Dan Gunther, Enterprise Risk Manager at Sterling Bank, and Susan Palm, Vice President - Industry Solutions at MetricStream will provide practical strategies and frameworks that will help organizations to implement a mature ERM program. Other pertinent points in the discussion will include:

  • Planning a strategic approach for implementing an enterprise-wide risk management program
  • Best practices in building a risk management organization
  • How to measure and manage the maturity of an ERM program
  • The role of technology for an effective ERM program
  • Long-term benefits for BFS organizations with a mature ERM program
