Risk Appetite Management

Virtual Workshop




Today’s business environment is rapidly evolving. There is intense pressure to respond to strategic, cultural, technological, environmental and market changes. A well-devised risk appetite framework provides a way for your company to link strategy and risk management, strengthening risk culture and enhancing performance in these turbulent times.

This course teaches you how to navigate the complex and critical area of risk appetite management and how to develop a risk appetite framework that clarifies your company’s position on risk taking. Learn how to construct risk appetite and risk tolerance statements, which will guide your company’s decisions aligning risks to strategic and business objectives.

These statements help protect organizations against solely pursuing single, narrow goals without considering potential consequences as they pursue rewards for an “appropriate” level of risk. What is appropriate and acceptable for one organization may be unacceptable to another.
