Risk & Governance

Risk management should be embedded within an organisation to minimise the impact of unpredictable events and maximise opportunities. Striving for business growth, managing its associate risks and compliance with prescribed laws and regulations requires a measured balance. A disciplined and inclusive approach to governance, risk management and compliance issues can help sustain organisational success.

A very common misconception is that corporate governance is about the conduct and actions at the Board and Senior Management level. However, the best governed companies are the ones that have successfully operationalised governance across the organisation by designing and operating effective processes for deployment of strategy, monitoring progress and reporting.

Set out below is an illustration of a holistic governance framework:
