What we do

The increased emphasis on risk management by the Board, following the Walker Report and reaction to the financial crisis, is here to stay. The emphasis is upon increased governance of risk. The goal is to provide the opportunity for improved dialogue on risk issues with the executive based on an advanced understanding of constraints and limitations influencing business models and their implementation.

The Board should approve and monitor the overall business strategy of the bank, taking into account the bank’s long-term financial interests, its exposure to risk, and its ability to manage risk effectively; and Approve and oversee the implementation of the bank’s:

 - Overall risk strategy, including its risk tolerance / appetite;

 - Policies for risk, risk management and compliance;

 - Internal Controls System

 - Corporate Governance framework, principles and corporate values, including a code of conduct or comparable document; and

 - Compensation System”
