Risk Management

Navigating risk in a volatile world.

Korn Ferry’s Risk Management Center of Expertise focuses on helping organizations attract, develop, and retain best-in-class Risk Officers and their direct reports. As regulators drive the agenda, Risk Officers are now a valued strategic business partner with key interaction with Boards and all levels of Senior Management. There is still, however, a limited talent pool. Korn Ferry offers a full range of solutions designed to address Risk Officer talent needs — from strategic search services, competency based assessments, and engaging, interactive high-potential leadership development programs to one-on-one coaching, strategic talent design, and succession planning.

Bench strength is critical in Risk.

Risk Management now plays a strategic role in financial institutions and other industries, and the drive for strong succession planning has emerged. Talent gaps exist as expectations of direct reports and their capabilities do not always align. Risk officers must navigate and manage complex relationships with regulators, boards, the C-suite, and other external shareholders. A high level of leadership capacity is imperative as they set the vision and deliver. With best-in-breed Risk executives commanding a premium to move, developing high potential Risk leaders within is critical to achieving bench strength.
