ERM was once considered necessary for only “large” institutions, however since the financial crisis of 2008-2009 ERM became a strategic attribute, expected to be used by financial institutions of all sizes. ERM is no longer a function pressed onto only multi-billion dollar institutions by the regulators.View Details
Unfortunately, community institutions do not have the resources to duplicate the comprehensive ERM programs of our largest institutions, so the question becomes—what is realistic and affordable for the smaller and mid-sized institution?
Join us for our webinar, A Practical Approach to ERM on May 11, and you will learn the basic elements of ERM including how to integrate your current risk management activities into an effective ERM program. We’ll discuss how to limit the creation of new, expensive, complex systems and procedures.
You’ll see that ERM is an affordable process available to even the smallest institution. An ERM program can be implemented by management and the Board, and used to evaluate uncertainties and also manage the risks of operating losses, and can help you take advantage of opportunities to build the institution’s value.
