WEBINAR: What You Don't Know Can Hurt You: The Intersection of Strategic Planning and Risk Management

The most overlooked element of strategic planning at financial institutions isn’t profits, assets, growth or people. It’s risk. The information gleaned from proper risk management gives both the board and management valuable insights to help make better decisions that achieve strategic success.

This program will address the integral role risk management plays in the strategic planning process with topics such as:
  • How risk appetite and KRIs inform business decisions and strategic goals
  • The perils of ignoring risk
  • Presenting risk parameters that board members can understand
  • Big risk, big reward vs. little risk, little reward
  • Measuring and monitoring results via SMART metrics
Whether you’re a board member or senior management, this program will give you the outlook you need to ensure that your institution is making the right decisions about business lines, products, and systems with eyes wide open.
