In banking, risk management is always en vogue. Now more than ever though it seems to be a re-emerging hot topic amongst bank regulators. From regulatory risk to reputation risk every action a financial institution takes opens the door to some level of potential consequence which must be considered. Most times these consequences, while unintended, are not wholly unexpected. Sometimes however the results can be unfortunate and totally surprising. These risk surprises are what lead to regulators second guessing us, customers doubting us, and other bankers thanking us for our missteps. These risk surprises are also usually the result of some failing in the risk assessment process. This ubiquitous tool of risk management is a crucial, and often required, part of modern banking which far too many of us either find too difficult to do or too “busy work-ish” to take seriously. That difficulty or mentality is what allows our banks to be exposed to more risk than they should be. This is certainly trouble and scrutiny we don’t need and this webinar will help you avoid that kind of trouble by giving you the tools needed to improve your risk assessment skills and understanding.
