Which risks are you willing to accept, and to which extent, in the pursuit of your business objectives? Clearly defining boundaries for your risk profile and thus formalising the risk appetite of your directors and senior managers is crucial in order to objectively balance business and risk priorities. Thus, establishing an effective risk appetite framework helps to reinforce a strong risk culture which in turn is critical to sound risk management.
This has also been recognised by regulators, who require financial institutions to have appropriate risk appetite frameworks in place.

This course will enable participants to:

  • understand the purpose and regulatory background of a risk appetite framework
  • understand how to establish a risk appetite framework that covers the full range of risks facing their company in line with best practices
  • understand how to establish a governance of risk appetite


  • Purpose of a risk appetite framework; regulatory background
  • Elements of a risk appetite framework; the role of a risk appetite framework in bank management
  • Formulating qualitative and quantitative risk appetite for financial and non-financial risks
  • Governance of risk appetite
  • Case studies
