Board Risk Oversight

Perhaps the most important aspect of the Board's responsibilities is to oversee the identification, measurement and control of risks which the business faces. This is not just a preventative activity, it encompasses the ability to see opportunities, calculate the risks and take them.  

To fulfil its function the Board relies heavily on the quality of the risk management function and the ownership of risks and controls by those working in and leading business areas. Increasingly Behavioural Risk and Reputational Risk have been identified as the root cause of failures and regulators are turning their attention to what Boards are doing to embed risk management.

BP&E has been working with Boards and risk management teams to improve processes and reporting as well as embedding into business areas understanding of this topic. Our Senior Consultants Eithne McManus and Dr Roger Miles are highly experienced and know what Boards need to consider.
