Financial risk management

Presented by: Mat Cooling

Since the 2008 financial crisis organisations have operated in an increasingly turbulent and volatile operating environment.  No sector has been insulated from this with high profile failures of banks, FTSE listed organisations and public sector bodies.  Financial volatility is likely to continue over the years to come as countries continue to battle the pandemic and Government and personal debt levels unseen since World War II have to begin to be repaid.  It has arguably never been as vital for organisations to have a robust financial risk management framework which is responsive and forward looking.  This accelerated  course will help equip auditors to ask the right questions of finance and non-finance professionals to provide assurance over the capability and capacity of organisations to manage this risk.

Who should attend?

Internal auditors and other assurance professionals with an interest in developing their team’s ability to assess an organisation’s financial risk management framework.  No specific finance experience required other than an awareness of the basics of financial operations.
