A Place for Ideas Exchange Without Boundaries


The European Risk Management Council is a platform for sharing the knowledge and best practice in risk management.

It lacks some crucial elements that allow banks to successfully mitigate the impact of a crisis, should the “perfect storm” hit the industry. Please read the article:
