Event Details



Everything these days is about Risk; identifying it, assessing it, mitigating and managing it. Organisations are exposed to risk, recognise their exposure and want to be safe. But you can never eliminate risk entirely, so you must effectively manage it. Risk Management is about balancing potential gains from perhaps ambitious strategies with the potential downsides if objectives are not met. This needs to be done professionally taking account of international standards and best practices.


Risk management is the process by which organisations methodically address the risks attaching to their activities in pursuit of organisational objectives and across the portfolio of all their activities. Effective risk management involves: risk assessment; risk evaluation; risk treatment; and risk reporting. The focus of good risk management is the identification and treatment of those risks in accordance with the organisation’s risk appetite.


An important element to this process is financial analysis which plays a critical role, as it can prove to be a vital source of information that can be used to input into the risk management process.
