Risk management system:
how much added value would you like?

Many companies do not exploit the full value of their investment in risk management because:

  • their risk management meets current compliance requirements, but only plays a marginal role in decision-making and corporate management.
  • their risk processes, risk structures and risk functions do not act in concert and so do not exchange critical data and information, or processes and information flows are redundant.

In the area of RISK, we deal with organizational and strategic frameworks for all a company's risk functions – Risk Management, Internal Control System, Internal Audit and Compliance (including the so-called risk management system). We also help define and develop the relevant processes and methods for individual risk functions - from design through to implementation. In doing so, we concentrate on the interplay of the four risk functions and above all on the quantification and aggregation of risks as well as their integration into corporate management.

We assist you in the simultaneous optimization of three dimensions:

  • Risk - degree of overall risk
  • Costs - scale of costs
  • Value - contribution to corporate value.

Risk management trends

  • Increasing quantification of risks (aggregation) and integration of risk management in corporate management
  • Reduction of cost of control (without increasing overall risk) by raising the potential efficiency, primarily for the Internal Control System, and collaboration of all risk functions
  • Releasing Internal Audit from its role as the "corporate police" and developing it into a value-generating business partner.
