Event Details

It's been said that over 70 percent of the world's leading financial services executives believe that losses stemming from the credit crisis were largely due to failures in addressing risk management issues. If the past 18 months have taught us one thing, it's the fundamental need for companies to incorporate real-time market movements into their risk models. Pressure from regulators, rating agencies, investors and public opinion following the financial meltdown are motivating business professionals to upgrade their use of risk modeling. Many companies are evolving their enterprise risk management (ERM) strategies to stay competitive. How will these emerging strategies change the way companies do business? How will these new ideas and changes be different from the old risk management approaches? In what ways are companies implementing the new risk management change? Chicago Booth invites you to join us for a discussion with Booth alumni and risk professionals who will share their expertise and perspective on the current environment, and hear their take on the future of risk management in London.
