Risk Management

Risk Management

In recent years economic uncertainty has had a major impact on how financial institutions operate. Organisations that used to operate and run smoothly due to analysis of forecasts and projections, now resist from making decisions that are set in stone. Organisations now have a renewed focus - managing risk. Risk management teams identify, evaluate and prioritise risks and act to minimise and control adverse events or maximise opportunities that come with disruption.

Following the global financial crisis, risk management teams have become increasingly important to help protect financial markets and prevent firms experiencing further fines and sanctions. In the ten years following the 2008 global financial crisis, banks paid fines of US$321bn (€289bn). Germany’s biggest financial institution, Deutsche Bank is the most high profile example of such fines - in September 2016, the bank received a fine totalling US$7.2bn (€6.5bn) for its part in mis-selling mortgage securities.

Important trends suggest that risk management is set to experience even more sweeping changes in the next decade. A recent report by McKinsey & Company explains, "Today, about half of the risk management employees are dedicated to risk-related operational processes such as credit administration, while 15% work in analytics. The reports forecasts that by 2025, these numbers will be closer to 25 and 40%, respectively."

The Global Asscociation of Risk Professionals (GARP) aims to educate and inform risk professionals at all levels, from those beginning their careers in risk to those leading risk programs at the largest financial institutions across the globe. The organisation led by German Chapter Director, Markus Quick, offers a Financial Risk Manager programme that is respected across the globe. Achieving this accreditation is great way to bolster your career progression.

Our Berlin based consultants are specialists in their markets, recruiting top talent for organisations in risk management sector throughout Germany and the rest of Europe.
