Course description

Emerging Operational Risks in the Changing Asset and Wealth Management World

Due to the enormous increase in regulatory focus for asset management, the management of risk has become a major core concern for asset managers. Regulation such as Basel III and Solvency II and the very real nature of the changing landscape of the markets have contributed to this. Zero interest rate policies, quantitative easing and the exiting of core market making activities by banks and the like, has created a new investment landscape. One which requires careful and considered risk management across all risks in a blended and coherent fashion, so as to reduce the pitfalls of a silo mentality and gaps between responsibilities across portfolio managers, risk management, operations, controllers and internal audit. The challenge is to build a robust risk management framework which satisfies the demands of Regulation and Non-Executives and delivers a real and effective process which enhances the business and protects it from threats.

This course is designed to highlight the potential problems with current risk management set-ups and suggest new approaches and ways to minimise the dangers of getting it wrong.

The focus of this course will be the understanding and management of risk for the Asset Management business rather than specifically the portfolios that they run on behalf of their clients.
