What Is Financial Risk Management?

Financial Risk Management is a structured, consistent, and continuous risk management process applied across an entire organization that allows you to proactively identify, assess, and mitigate risks required to achieve corporate and strategic financial and non-financial risk objectives.

“Our focus is in helping financial services providers to transform their business by preparing, adapting, and recovering from business disruptions, as well as aligning to their organization’s strategy and performance goals.”
Brian Murrow, Firm Managing Partner, Risk & Accounting Advisory Services

What is the Financial Risk Management Process?

Cherry Bekaert’s financial risk management consulting services helps financial services institutions improve decision-making, increase accountability, provide clarity on key organizational risks, and enable risk-based performance measurement with improved controls efficiency.

We utilize an integrated and proprietary Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) framework and methodology that can be applied and customized for the financial services industry and includes peer benchmarking, regulatory expectations, and leading practices.

Our integrated approach is both proactive and holistic to manage risk and designed to enhance value by improving risk culture through the identification, assessment, and management of an organization’s risk portfolio in a cost-effective manner.
