AIAM Q2 Event | 16 May 2019
Risk Framework for Asset Managers

We are delighted to share that KPMG’s risk consulting unit will be conducting a special training session for the association on the practicalities of the risk management framework.

MAS has focused increasingly at how fund managers carry out risk management via the issuance of various regulatory requirements used to address and provide necessary guidance to FIs. Such as, the need for asset managers to put in place a risk management framework which is appropriate to the nature, scale and complexity of its assets. When identifying such risks, rather than finding the right metric and thresholds, Risk Managers and the Board of Directors of Asset Management Companies would have to thoroughly identify, understand, mitigate and monitor their exposures to risks. As such, its crucial for each stakeholder (e.g., investors, risk managers, fund managers and board members etc.) to be able to understand the purpose of risk management and own their actions. With regards to this, KPMG is pleased to conduct a training workshop that provides fund management professionals an overview and practical approach to Risk Management in the Asset Management space.
