Few concepts have caused more confusion and debate among Enterprise Risk Management practitioners than risk appetite. From varying definitions to wildly different approaches portrayed as “best practice,” we are a long way from consensus on what risk appetite really means.

Webinar Highlights

In this comprehensive 90-minute recorded session, Rob Quail describes an approach to understanding and developing an organization’s risk appetite. He focuses on the fundamental question of: What is our organization’s appetite for taking risk and how this is aligned with strategic objectives, values, ethics and decision-making. He enhances the conversation by discussing the various roles of the Board, CEO, CRO management and stakeholders. Lastly, he explores how risk appetite is implemented, monitored and controlled.
