The Chief Risk Officer’s position, by comparison to its peers, is relatively new having emerged in the 1990s. Once relegated to the back office, it is only after the credit crisis that this critical function is gaining the recognition and standing it deserves for maintaining the safety net of the financial institution. The 4th Annual Risk Management Forum 2011 is the leading CRO forum in the Middle East dedicated to creating the blueprint for tomorrow’s financial sphere.
