So you don’t think you need a risk committee?

This morning’s Breakfast Briefing was highly successful. Oliver Peterken presented a rigorous talk on the value of risk committees and the obstacles preventing them from being efficient. Here’s what to watch-out for:

·    Executive vs. Board: to whom does the Risk Committee report?
·    Beware the Audit Committee/Risk Committee overlap!
·    Chief Risk Officer’s relationship to the Risk Committee
·    Responsibilities: defining the Chief Risk Officer
·    Leadership in a time of crisis

The audience was engrossed and Dr. Geraldine Kaye facilitated a scintillating Q&A following the talk. The conversation was really informative and heated up after the cameras were off. A great time was had by all.
