In an increasingly interconnected and volatile financial world, risk management is a concern of all investors. Whether a pension plan, an endowment or foundation or a family office, the establishment, management and monitoring of investment risk guidelines has become a more complex task in recent years. Investors are looking for new and better ways to understand the risks they are taking, and want risk management methods that provide timely data to inform their investment decisions. Best practice shows that more time is being spent on ensuring that institutional investors have well-structured risk management systems. So what are the components of such a system and how do they work? From a well-defined governance structure through a clear investment policy to a comprehensive measurement and reporting process, today’s risk management systems are evolving entities that change as the world’s financial and economic markets develop. This conference series will consider risk management strategies and processes that allow investors to keep pace with the times.
