Thought leadership webinar

From risk appetite to objectives appetite.

On demand webinar

How to make risk appetite relevant for your organisation.

For every organisation, the integration of risk appetite and strategy is crucial. The strategy defines the north star for what the organisation aims to achieve, while the risk appetite establishes the risk boundaries within which it operates.

Too often, risk appetite is considered separately from strategy, leading to misaligned risk appetite, misaligned risk management and missed opportunities. The key is ensuring your decision making always references your risk appetite.

Join David Tattam, Protecht’s Chief Research and Content Officer, Michael Howell, Protecht’s Research and Content Lead, and Hela Ebrahimi, Protecht’s Risk Consultant for this insightful webinar, as they take you through a practical approach on aligning your risk appetite and strategy.
