Retail Risk Management and Classification

From a regulatory perspective, risk is the potential that events, expected or unanticipated, may have an adverse impact on a bank’s capital or earnings. To control risk and mitigate its impact on financial performance, all banks must have systems that identify, measure, control, and monitor risks. Strong risk management systems are especially important when introducing new products or services and during economic growth or recession.
