Our annual risk management survey of major financial institutions, scheduled for release on 8 October, finds 89% of banks increasing their focus on non-financial risk and 64% citing weaknesses in oversight and controls as the main cause of non-financial losses.

Nearly 70% of G-SIBs surveyed reported losses of more than US$1b from non-financial risks in the past three years, while 25% experienced losses up to US$20b.

Rising litigation costs, steep fines and reputational damage, along with regulatory and investor pressures, have compelled banks to change their approach to risk by re-examining non-financial elements and making front-office staff more accountable.

Our panelists will discuss findings from the survey and five key changes major banks are making to overcome challenges, improve risk management, and build profitability.
