Risk Management, Ethics & Corporate Governance

1 June to 12 June

Risk management, Ethics and Corporate Governance is often performed by the whole organizational not at unit level, ideally an independent staff function reporting directly to the board of directors, making risk management a board responsibility, strategy and task. The board has to set strategic targets and ensure, via strict controls, that the delegated goals are actually achieved within the centrally mandated guidelines. Running a risk-management function in a centralized manner is advantageous because it allows for an independent, integrated view of all types of risk, so that only the net positions achieves transparency (Schroeck, 2002).

Many crises in different economies, in any business be it insurance or the financial services industry happen because of ethics, and lack of corporate problems within organizations. Often the term risk including corruption (cases of potential losses, personal injuries/death/diseases to workers or employees) is used interchangeably with terms such as danger, hazard, peril, bankruptcy and thus the need to properly make the differentiation between these terms. Organisations that manage their risks and practice good corporate governance have a competitive advantage over others, as they take risks management consciously, anticipate adverse changes and hedge and protect themselves from such changes, to reduce negative financial outflows
