Five Reasons for ERM

The overall aim of Enterprise Risk Management is to ensure that objectives and goals are achieved, by planning and properly manage significant risks. Risks are identified, assigned an owner and actions taken to control the risks in appropriate ways. Controls can be policies and procedures, providing training or perhaps ensuring that there is insurance in place to reduce the impact if the risk event occurs. Different risks will require different actions and response plans.

Get ready for GDPR - May 2018

ready for GDPR 2018

The European wide General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the council of 27 April 2016) will apply in the UK from 25th May 2018. Even though the UK has chosen to leave the EU, the new regulation will still commence.

The aim of the regulation is to allow EU citizens to better control their personal data. It also modernises and unifies rules across the union taking into account recent technological development.

Management of insured risks

Management of insured risks

management-insured-risks

Insurance is a way of transferring your risk to somebody else (an insurance company) who will compensate you should the risk event occur, in return of a premium. One of the factors affecting the premium is the loss history both in terms of how often the event has occurred and how large the loss has been in financial terms. Premiums are often reduced by offering of no claims discount. That means that if you have not had any claims for a certain number of years you will get a discount on your premium.

An important element in Enterprise Risk Management is risk reporting. Throughout the risk management process there are continuous feedback loops such as within the risk assessment, whilst risks are being monitored and when an internal audit takes place. The aim with risk management is to ensure compliance with policies, laws and regulations; to provide assurance to the board that significant risks have been identified and are being managed within set risk appetite; and to provide details to inform decisions.

Enterprise Risk Management - Service Your Business As You Would Your Car

Enterprise Risk Management - Service Your Business As You Would Your Car
ERM Service Your Business

Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) makes business sense! Not many organisations who are actively practicing ERM would argue with that. However, it tends to be predominantly organisations which are required by regulation or listing rules that actually implement ERM. Why is that? It tends to be budgetary constraints as well as a lack of understanding of what ERM actually means for them that stops businesses from making investment into ERM.

For European insurers Solvency II has been effective since 1 January 2016 and is now business as usual! Or is it?

Insurance companies in Europe invested millions of Euros in ensuring readiness and compliance with the European wide regulation Solvency II.

Under Solvency II, insurers are required to take account of all types of risk to which they are exposed and to manage those risks effectively. Read More…

What’s Your Risk Appetite?

risk appetite

Risk appetite is the level of “How much risk your organisation is willing to take”. Risk appetite is subjective and is often very different from the organisation’s risk capacity, which is: “How much risk your organisation is able to take”. If an organisation has a willingness to take little risk it is risk-averse and if it is willing to take more risk it is risk aggressive. Needless to say, the higher the risk, the higher the return and more hurtful is the loss if things go wrong. Therefore risk appetite is very much in the heart of how a company conducts its business.
