Risk Professional Gathering in Singapore Next Month For The Risk Intelligence Conference

The issue with risk intelligence is that people have the difficulty in looking ahead. With a forever changing business environment and increasinguncertainties in financial markets, risk intelligence is becoming essential to ensure long term organisational profitability and sustainability. Businesses are also fiercely competing for market share in this era of many uncertainties and limitations as well as compete for profit making opportunities available.
Mr. Shigehiko Mori, Joint General Manager, Asia Financial Solution Division, Mizuho Corporate Bank, Hong Kong stated, “I recently assume JGM of Asia Financial Solution Div of Mizuho Corporate bank. Prior to that, I was head of Operational Risk team at Mizuho Financial Group, a holding company for a whole Mizuho Group. Changing my assignment from top holding company level to the regional business promotion div in HK, I realised that what we want to design for business model from holding company level is quite different from what we actually are doing at business promotion div. In order to enhance risk control and risk mind at the business promotion level in real term, we need to design business model more precisely so that all staffs with various cultural backgrounds can easily understand what they are exactly required to do in actual business areas. Also concept of risk exposure / risk appetite / risk tolerance is not well understood at business promotion div. To make efficient control over risk appetite / risk tolerance, we need more simple and transparent risk control framework so that all staffs can easily understand their risk position.” Mr. Shigehiko Mori will share his knowledge on Remaining Calm during a Disaster.
“Such events are really necessary to spread and raise awareness about risk management and ERM processes, given the uncertain times that we have witnessed over the last few years. It is also important to know that Risk Management involves weighing bad risks and good risks. Bad risks are events that an organization wants to avoid, if possible, at a reasonable cost. However, good risks arise from opportunities that organizations must seize to grow.” Added Chidambaram Krishnan, Senior Head – Enterprise Risk Management, Gulf Bank, Kuwait, who will also be presenting at Risk Intelligence:
He continued to comment, “It is an important event where various dimensions of risk would be presented and debated by risk management experts with a broad range of experience in different aspects of risk management. Hence, it would really add value to the participants especially those aspiring to gain expertise in this extremely relevant and topical subject. ”
