Integrating & Synthesizing New Emerging Risks – Within the ERM Framework: Part II

Posted at 1:00 AM ET

Instead of segmenting portfolios and handling each peril on a standalone basis, a robust ERM methodology would use a holistic approach to risk and capital management where threats are identified and monitored, all action plans are developed and risks are measured.
