Reducing Risk In The Front Office

Although financial institutions are aware that a robust risk management framework is an integral component of successful business strategies, this research indicates that there is room for improvement in the risk management processes at most firms.

The influence of risk management divisions on business strategies has grown markedly in the wake of the financial crisis of 2008. However, there is a need to forge stronger relationships between risk and the front office if financial institutions are to regain the confidence of their clients in a post-crisis world.
