This workshop will demonstrate how independent risk oversight can add value to the business, rather than being a regulatory overhead and provides guidance on how to set-up and operate such a function.
It will deliver a clear, structured template for the risk oversight information that should be provided to UCITS management companies and their associated boards, a format that can also be used to supplement the existing performance reports provided to clients holding segregated mandates.
In addition, the course provides guidance on how to document the risk management process so that it can be used both as a regulatory submission and as a day-to-day reference guide for the organisation.
