Your senior management team's role
Your senior management team must set out your Firm’s risk policies as well as the procedures for implementing those policies. These are essential to ensure a consistent approach throughout the firm.
Driven by the risk map the policies set out the risk appetite of the firm and the priorities in managing risk. The policies can be used to communicate to all levels in the firm the importance of risk management and how it applies to everyone. It also sets out the framework within which the procedures are designed to operate.
The risk management procedures allocate responsibilities for managing risk and identify the resources available to do so. The creation of a risk register which monitors and controls risks is part of this process.
An essential part of this is creating the reporting structure ensuring that senior management is regularly updated on the effectiveness of the firm’s risk management policies and procedures.
