For many years Richard Pike, CEO, Governor Software, has held non-executive director roles at financial firms advising on Governance, Compliance and Operational Risk. He currently sits as Chairman of Citadel Securities (Ireland) Ltd, Chairman Board Risk committee Starling Bank International and NED Citadel Europe and FBD Insurance plc.

As a non-exec director, Richard is very aware of the amount of information that firms are legally required to collate to be regulatory compliant, including having a written and approved Risk Appetite Statement (RAS) that is monitored on an ongoing basis to ensure the Firm's actual Risk profile is aligned with its Risk Appetite. Richard is also very aware of the challenges in ensuring the data is collated correctly and presented to the Senior Management and Board in a timely manner.

How do you currently undertake this process.

For many, the complexity in collating RAS information, arises in aggregating risk metrics from multiple business lines and regions. Typically, this data is aggregated manually from front-office and middle office platforms by tools such as Excel within the risk management team. This error prone process not only lacks the necessary depth of governance required for Audit but can take up significant time from highly skilled resources. As well as potentially missing RAS breaches between reporting periods during volatile markets, it also becomes difficult to trace actions, tasks and approvals to manage those breaches. This potentially means the Board is making decisions on out of date irrelevant information.
