Emerging Risks To Watch Out For

14 April 2016
The City of London

This Chief Risk Officers’ think tank meeting is dedicated to emerging risks for 2016 and beyond. During the meeting, we focus on two emerging risk areas:

  • Macroeconomic risks: current market volatility, Eurozone deflation risk, Chinese economic slowdown, energy and commodity market risks.
  • Geopolitical risks and potential implications for the financial industry from geopolitical instability: the forthcoming EU referendum in Britain and possible implications of Brexit, the Syrian conflict and the refugee crisis, and terrorist attack threats.
