The financial market crisis of recent years has brought Risk Management right into the spotlight of not only all financial service organisations but the regulators as well. Increased scrutiny of the risk function coupled with a plethora of more complex instruments and investment strategies means the pressures and expectation surrounding Risk Management departments has never been greater.

In addition to this heightened need for greater transparency in the way organisations undertake their risk function, financial institutions are facing challenges for these departments to move away from traditional "hindrance" and "policing" functions into a more true value added service provider for the Front Office.
