Risk Management

The concept of risk management has many applications for financial services firms. Along with the traditional market, credit, and operational risks, compliance and regulatory concerns have become more prominent over the past decade. At many firms, the Chief Risk Officer (CRO) is responsible for broader insurance decisions as well. At Egon Zehnder, our ability to deliver on leadership solutions is particularly valuable in rapidly evolving sectors such as risk management, where a new breed of CRO with a more holistic understanding of broader financial services processes is emerging to meet these challenges.

We offer the reach of a global firm, with 63 offices spanning 36 countries and more than 560 consultants worldwide. At the same time, the fact that we hire consultants almost exclusively from industry gives us the deep subject-matter expertise of a boutique risk management leadership advisor. In the field of risk management alone, we have completed hundreds of assignments over the past several years in close partnership with our clients.

We are well equipped to handle both regional and global approaches in search as well as in management assessment and leadership development. Our subject-matter expertise and flexibility also enable us to partner on emerging industry challenges such as new approaches to quantitative modeling powered by the Blockchain. Cyber-risk has increased in importance, and firms now are also building rapid response plans for situations in which rogue conduct poses reputational risk and the potential for governmental scrutiny.

We know the risk management community because we are part of the community, both globally and at a local market level. We invite you to experience a true partnership by allowing Egon Zehnder to help you work through these evolving challenges.
