The Risk Group's mission is to help the Bank achieve its objectives while managing risks within the Bank's risk tolerance. The Group's role is to serve as the Bank's second line of defense to ensure effective risk management. We do this by performing independent assessment and oversight of the Bank's risks. We establish frameworks to improve Bank's risk management processes and practices. The scope of our work includes:

  • The Bank's principal risks: operational risk, financial risk, strategic and reputational risk, and, in collaboration with the Compliance Function, compliance risk
  • The Bank's key enterprise risks: risks that threaten the Bank's ability to achieve its mission
  • Material risks of the Bank's major business areas
