1 Knowledge, Skills and Abilities Needed for Effective Risk Management William May Senior Vice President FRM Program Manager Global Association of Risk Professionals February 2012

2 Evolution of Risk Management Risk management as a profession barely existed 20 years ago How did we get here from there? Risk management solutions Risk measurement techniques Computational power Buy-side pull Notable risk management failures Regulatory Initiatives

3 Risk Management Role in Current Crisis Risk measurement Risk models misused or misspecified? Understanding of liquidity, correlation Effective use of stress testing Risk mitigation Hedges viewed in isolation? Risk reporting and communication Did risk managers speak-up? Was anybody listening? Risk culture Clouded by strong performance and compensation structure?

4 Lessons Learned Risk Management Lessons Worth Remembering By Ben Golub and Conan Crum (Blackrock) 1. Risk management requires institutional buy-in 2. The alignment and management of institutional interests are critical to risk management 3. Institutions need an independent risk management organization with strong subject-matter expertise 4. Institutions need to understand their fiduciary responsibilities to their clients 5. While a top-down perspective is necessary, a bottoms-up risk management process is vital 6. Institutions need to get portfolio managers to think like risk managers 7. Risk models require vigilance and skepticism 8. Institutional risk management does not mean risk avoidance

5 Impact on the Practice of Risk Management Accountability at all levels Greater participation from senior management Stronger risk cultures Greater emphasis on big picture, integration New regulatory initiatives Basel III; Dodd-Frank, Fed/FSA Increased quant skepticism Greater emphasis on stress testing Identified need for better understanding, monitoring of liquidity and correlations
