As regulation tightens globally, securing knowledgeable, innovative, and agile senior leaders is crucial to business growth. Risk and compliance are no longer back office processes reserved for the financial and healthcare industries. Their analysis has become an essential part of corporate decision making in industries. With international trade developments and the rising appetite for M&A across numerous industries (requiring corporate transparency), senior risk officers and compliance professionals have become critical contributors to corporate strategy.
Recent changes in the financial landscape have caused credit, market, liquidity and operational risk to take centre stage. Simultaneously, growing governmental oversight has stretched internal resources and initiated profound changes in fundamental business models. Mastering the interconnectedness between various risk disciplines and harmonising them with regulatory optimisation, compliance, and IT-enabled infrastructure will be a hallmark of successful companies in the immediate future.
