Integrated Risk Management | Driving Growth for Financial Institutions
Integrated risk management is at the very core of the business of banking and a fundamental differentiator between financial institutions. In other words, institutions that identify, measure, and manage risk most effectively will outperform their peers in terms of financial performance while also maintaining safety and soundness. This is especially true during economic downturns as institutions may confront increasing credit risk in their loan portfolios as well as liquidity risk, interest rate risk, and pressure to maintain appropriate capital levels.
This whitepaper will take a closer look at some of the existing integrated risk management practices employed by financial institutions today and the areas of overlap and interaction between them. Additionally, it will consider ways to synthesize results across these practices and the case for automation to accelerate that process.
