CPD Course: Dealing with Risk

Dealing with Risk

In the words of US business leader Gary Cohn: “If you don’t invest in risk management, it doesn’t matter what business you’re in, it’s a risky business”. Risk is all around in business, and it’s essential that it’s dealt with effectively to protect the organisation’s long-term success. 

Financial professionals often play an integral role in assessing and advising on both financial and non-financial risks. As such, this course has been designed to introduce you to risk management principles and processes that will prepare you to actively assess and manage the myriad of risks that organisations face.

Provides 16 hours of CPD

    • The PESTEL model and Porter’s Five Forces to help you identify external risks an organisation faces
