A Stronger Enterprise Risk Program
Implications from the pandemic brought renewed focus on risk management for banks and credit unions. However, many smaller financial institutions silo their risk management in departments and are reactionary to regulatory pressure. With many institutions facing critical decisions on deploying excess liquidity into loans or securities to manage profitability, the importance of a strong ERM process has never been more in focus.

Yet many risk assessment processes miss the mark on understanding the trade-offs and potential gains from such a decision.
