Risk Management

Risk management is the identification, quantification, and proactive management of risks—and it is a key factor for value creation in all industries. Given today’s unstable two-speed economy, every business needs to evaluate and improve its risk-management capabilities. Here are some of the most significant risks in financial services:

  • Credit risk from lending activities

  • Market and counterparty risk from trading activities (notably, derivatives trading)

  • Liquidity risk from mismatched assets and liabilities

  • Operational risk from error and omission in core systems and processes

  • Risks associated with the writing of insurance contracts for objects, businesses, and people

Over the last decade, BCG has built a global team of risk experts. The team covers all major financial centers, including Frankfurt, London, Paris, Hong Kong, and New York, as well as all major risk domains: regulation, analytics, governance and organization, culture and process, and systems redesign. Naturally, our risk expertise dovetails with BCG’s core competencies: planning, steering, and strategy for senior executive management.  Read More
