Creating the Bank’s Risk Appetite for Success


Boards and management are consistently challenged with questions such as: what goes into a risk appetite statement, how to decide how much risk the bank is willing to accept and where, and how to achieve strategic objectives and initiatives within acceptable risk parameters.

These and others are all important questions that the board and management must face and be able to articulate to each other, the employees, and regulators to ensure they are providing the highest quality of governance for the bank. This WiBinar will discuss the importance of creating the bank’s risk appetite and how it impacts strategic objectives and initiatives.
