Risk exposure arising from business activities Need to effectively manage because of Potential business losses Ensure business continuity Wider and/or complex risk requires more prudent management Risk appetite determines risk exposure

Strategic Level Encompasses senior management and BOD Macro Level Within a business area or across business lines Micro Level On-the-line risk management Need to have properly structured RM

Areas covered Credit Risk Market Risk Liquidity Risk Operational Risk Certain basic principles for risk management applicable to all institutions irrespective of size and complexity
Board and senior Management oversight The overall responsibility of risk management vests in the Board of Directors, which shall formulate policies in various areas of operations of the bank. The senior management is, interalia, responsible for devising risk management strategy and well-defined policies and procedures for mitigating/controlling risks, which should be duly approved by the Board. The senior management is also responsible for the dissemination, implementation, and compliance of approved policies and procedures.
Integration of Risk Management At operational level, risk assessment may be made on portfolio or business line basis, however, at the top level the management need to adopt a holistic approach in assessing and managing risk profile of the bank. Business Line Accountability Irrespective of a separate risk review or management function individuals heading various business lines or units are also accountable for the risk they are taking.
Risk Evaluation/Measurement Wherever possible risks should be quantitatively measured, reported, and mitigated. Independent review The risk review function should be independent of those who approve and take risk. The review should include, interalia, stress tests exposing the portfolio to unanticipated movements in key variables or major systemic shocks. Contingency planning Banks should have contingency plans for any unexpected or worst case scenarios.
The individuals who take or manage risks clearly understand it. The organizations Risk exposure is within the limits established by Board of Directors. Risk taking Decisions are in line with the business strategy and objectives set by BOD. The expected payoffs compensate for the risks taken Risk taking decisions are explicit and clear. Sufficient capital as a buffer is available to take risk.
