The Corporate ERM Group meeting hosted by Parker Hannifin on November 9-10 in Cleveland will feature timely insights from corporate professionals, academics and other experts on critical risk topics, and will offer NeuGroup members the chance to discuss challenges and opportunities they face in this increasingly complex field.
Check out these highlights from the agenda:
Regulation and Risk - The Banks’ View: KeyBank’s chief risk officer will share details and perspective on how his bank and the financial industry have navigated the changed, tightened regulatory environment in the wake of the financial crisis. What lessons does the experience hold for non-banks on how risk groups can better position organizations strategically amid an uncertain regulatory backdrop?
Understanding Blockchain’s Risk Profile: Proponents of blockchain technology tout its security benefits, but some financial and risk professionals are wary of being too ahead of the curve. What’s the risk-reward offered by blockchain? We’ll get the views of Symbiont president Caitlin Long about the selling points of blockchain and her company’s technology, which promises to reduce risk and eliminate tampering in financial transactions and save money and time. Long, who worked at Morgan Stanley, also shared in a patent for terminating pension plans through mutual annuitization.
Natural Disaster Risk - Harvey, Maria and Beyond: This season’s rash of hurricanes makes clear both the suffering and devastation brought by natural disasters as well as the difficulty of effective risk planning. Climate change and other factors are taking a toll on communities, governments and corporations tasked with anticipating unpredictable risks and dealing with the aftermath of calamities. Members will share their thoughts and strategies on managing financial risks that seem likely to grow in the years ahead.
Odds and Ends: Members will discuss the growing link between risk and strategy and the challenges facing risk professionals fighting to play a greater role in a company’s strategic mission with one of the leading academic researchers on the topic. And we’ll discuss the just-released COSO framework on ERM with one of the project’s key advisors. What does this new framework mean, and why does it matter?
