Introduction

Over 70% of companies surveyed by the global risk management group, AON, have a formal risk management department, and 31% of those companies are proactively growing the function by appointing a Chief Risk Officer.

To manage business risk intelligently today, you need competent, knowledgeable risk management professionals on your side; the capabilities to support extensive scenario planning and risk mitigation; holistic information based on more than just a finance or process perspective, and the ability to look at different markets, customers and product lines in a more sophisticated manner.
