Manager - Risk Transformation

Date: Apr 8, 2021

Location: London, United Kingdom

Company: KPMG UK

At KPMG we are developing new approaches that will exploit the disruption by regulation and will embed highly effective and efficient risk frameworks that are aligned to business priorities and focused on the organisations’ bespoke landscape of risk and regulation. These are flexible and adaptable designed to address complex leadership challenges and deliver on wide ranging outcomes, built on core principles of leadership, culture and strategy.

Our approach intrinsically links the regulation and risk agendas, positioning all compliance activity within the risk framework as a risk category alongside others such as liquidity risk, market risk and operational risk. This immediately establishes better visibility of the relationship between risk and regulation and enables cohesion of decision-making and methods. It’s critical to understand what synergies exist with other risk and regulatory requirements to both meet them and avoid/remove complexity and cost.

Our approach transitions organisations from taking a functional (often inward and reactive) view of risk to synthesizing their Business and Risk strategies, taking an integrated and holistic approach that considers all aspects of the Operating Model and establishes well-defined relationships between profitability and risk; (and in doing so the leadership will land on a shared purpose).

We have a team of individuals with extensive risk, regulatory and transformation experience across all industries and sectors. Our primary services are:

1) Risk Vision, Strategy & Emerging Risk
2) Risk Framework & Operating Model
3) Governance & Risk Culture
