After the recent financial turbulence that has hit the Banking and Financial Services (BFS) industry, building an effective Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) has become a priority. But the challenges organizations face when building an effective ERM program are the continuous string of regulatory reforms introduced by regulatory bodies, the emerging and evolving risks, and the fast pace of  business growth and complexity, especially within geographically distributed operations.  What BFS organizations need is an integrated ERM program that will help them deal with the uncertain economic conditions and its associated risks, ensure compliance with laws and regulations, and help them identify business opportunities and increase profitability.

For BFS organizations to gain value from an efficient ERM program, they need to think ahead before they start working on it. In this discussion, Spyro Karetsos, Head of Enterprise Risk Management at The Vanguard Group, and Brenda Boultwood, Vice President of Industry Solutions at MetricStream, will provide valuable insights on laying the groundwork for a mature and future-ready ERM program for BFS organizations. Some of the key points that will be discussed are:

  • The need for a robust program to manage enterprise risks in BFS organizations
  • How establishing a future-oriented ERM program will help organizations combat emerging risks and changes
  • Technology as a differentiator in building an integrated ERM program
  • The benefits and opportunities for BFS organizations with an integrated and mature ERM program
