Risk culture is increasingly on the radar of Chief Risk Officers and their peers. A strong risk culture permeates through the organisation from the Board level through to front line staff.

We inherently understand that a strong risk culture can facilitate better identification and management of risk and opportunities, but how does an organisation's risk culture relate to the products and services that it provides to its customers? What is conduct risk and why is it increasingly on the risk agenda?

This discussion summary, ‘Balancing risk – the fine line that can make or break an organisation’, follows a roundtable with risk leaders and industry experts, it covers:

  • practical insight into what risk culture is and how it relates to conduct risk
  • current thinking on how to create strong culture and good conduct
  • tips on balancing the needs of stakeholders, in order to the business aligned with the corporate culture it aspires to maintain.
