FoRM 4: Risk Appetite Course

 

Attitudes to risk can vary considerably across a spectrum of risk-taking. Some businesses and sectors are more risk averse, while others are more open to taking on risk.

The amount and type of risk a company is willing to take to meet its strategic objectives is known as its risk appetite. By setting a risk appetite and communicating it effectively to all staff, companies establish a risk threshold.

Our Risk Appetite course explains why setting a risk appetite is important and how to implement this model in your company.
