ERM concepts and Risk categorisation [18]

Go to: Summary | Previous | Next   
Bullet points include: ERM should give an enterprise-wide risk picture, including Risks, risk concentrations and risk diversifications But having a full picture can be very costly and complex to achieve Often involves major multi-year change programmes and IT spend Proponents argue that gains in reduced losses and reduced volatility more than outweigh these costs. Examples from Lam (2003) include:  Large P&C insurer saved $40m or 13% of annual reinsurance premium Top money centre bank that focused on ERM out-performed S&P 500 banks by 58% in stock price performance.
