A Catalyst for Good? Part 3 | The Impact on Risk Management

In my last two blogs I covered my views about the possible positive impacts of COVID-10 on society and business. In this one I will focus on KRM22 focus on Risk Management in Capital Markets.

KRM22,which I lead, was set up to help reduce the cost and complexity of the risk management in capital markets with vision to allow firms to operate effectively at their optimum level of risk – what we call “Risk as Alpha”.

The Capital Markets are well used to assessing risk but were blind sided by the sudden and dramatic impact of COVID-19. It is worth noting that it was not all downside and in fact many were lucky and benefited from the high volatility and hence volumes of trades. Getting lucky is not a strategy and although positive for many, a reassessment of risk appetite, risk controls and in particular the broad church of enterprise risk is needed. 

KRM22’s Global Risk Platform provides applications to help you address your firm’s regulatory, market, technology and operations risk challenges and to manage your entire enterprise risk profile. KRM22 is a public Group listed on AIM and headquartered in London, with offices in several of the world’s major financial centers.
