Product description


The editor, Patricia Jackson, who has wide experience in the risk management field, has brought together an impressive array of authors to look at the nexus of factors which influence risk culture and at ways that an organisation can go about strengthening culture.

--Sir David Walker

"In the wake of the financial crisis, authorities expect the leaders of financial firms to ensure there is an appropriate risk culture to maintain soundness. This means considering capacity and appetite to take risk and addressing the wider factors which affect behaviour of staff and strength of risk management. Patricia Jackson and the contributing authors tackle all these elements making this an important book for boards and senior management."

--Svein Andresen, Secretary General, FSB

"Boards need to consider the prevailing culture in an organisation and how risks are managed. This is as true of a large industrial company or utility as it is of a bank. This book draws on a wide range of expertise and perspectives to provide an accessible guide for boards and senior management on how to create effective risk governance and a strong risk culture. I believe all those involved in running companies will find it valuable."

--Sir John Parker, Chairman Anglo American PLC
