Upcoming webinars

Digital transformation: 5 things you should know when transforming risk management processes

Thursday, 23 September 2021, 2pm BST | 3pm CET | 9am ET

Consumers now expect robust digital access to products and services. At the same time, regulators now expect banks to have a level of risk insight that’s only possible with advanced technology. Failure on either front could be costly, while regulation is a key driver of the digitisation agenda.

A successful digital transformation requires strong governance, risk, and compliance management – and aligning people, processes, and technology is fundamental to success. 

Join this webinar as we identify 5 key trends and issues organisations must consider when adopting digital risk management strategies.

Climate risk management: Effective planning for green finance and net zero

Tuesday, 28 September 2021, 2pm CET | 1pm BST

Green finance and net zero are two of the leading initiatives at banks in dealing with climate risk – arising both from consumer demand as well as push from government and regulators. At the same time, transition and physical risks are starting to make impacts on banks’ activities.

In this webinar, we will explore the main issues shaping climate agenda at both the regulatory and financial institutions and how they can best address them. We will also discuss how banks can better prepare to deal with future uncertainties as they prepare their portfolios for the journey towards a carbon free economy.

Climate risk analytics: Creating resilient infrastructure for stress testing and modelling

Thursday, 28 October 2021, 2pm CET | 1pm BST

As we ramp up on initiatives from regulators and banks for climate risk regulations, net zero commitments, stress testing, and managing stakeholder expectations, the financial industry is seeking data, methodologies, and execution details on how exactly to address these. In particular, regulatory climate risk stress testing/ scenario analysis is dominating the risk manager’s agenda. The reality is that there is little uniformity of approach or actionable clarity on how exactly to proceed.

In this webinar, we explore industry issues and challenges in building and using models for climate risk and how advanced analytics and technology can go beyond identifying and managing climate risks to identifying growth opportunities.
