“Enterprise risk management is a process, effected by an entity’s board of directors, management and other personnel, applied in strategy setting and across the enterprise, designed to identify potential events that may affect the entity, and manage risk to be within its risk appetite, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the achievement of entity objectives.”

It is important to establish an ERM Framework because it enables a firm to gain a clear view of its overall risk level. Discussed below are the steps that need to be taken to establish an ERM Framework, the potential benefits that can be expected, and the challenges that may be faced.

8 Risk Management Points Every Broker Should Know

As a result, medium-sized businesses do not benefit fully from risk management.Insurance brokers deal with these companies every day, sharing advice on one important aspect of risk: their insurance.

Brokers specialize in helping these same companies use broader risk management resources, tools, and services. If the brokers do not provide risk management services, others will: accountants, lawyers, and OHS and WCC consultants. Insurance brokers should talk to their clients and prospects about risk management in a way they understand.
