Different companies have different committees for risk management – Management Risk Committee, Board Risk Committee, Audit and Risk Committee, specialised Board-level risk committees such as Health and Safety Committee, and so on. How should a company best structure its governance of risk?
How can a company express its risk tolerance or appetite and communicate that internally and externally?
What are the lines of defence that a Board can rely on to ensure that the company’s risk management and internal controls are adequate and effective?
The answers to these questions, and more, are found in the Board Risk Committee Guide.
