An organisation's risk appetite is determined by its objectives, balance sheet strength, and the sorts of risks it faces, each company's risk appetite is distinct, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. In this video, Hans explains how we can arrive at a risk appetite statement, how to use it to generate value, as well as the role of the Board in the process.

Overview

Risk appetite is both a management and governance tool that allows businesses to make risk-return trade-offs in a controlled and transparent manner. Despite this, in many organisations it is only seen as a risk limitation or risk reduction measure. However, a well-crafted risk appetite framework should also encourage risk taking if the risk appetite is underutilised or opportunities with the right risk-return balance are presented.

Key learning objectives:

  • Define risk appetite

  • Understand how we arrive at an agreed risk appetite statement

  • Understand how risk appetite can add value to the organisation
