The Map and the Territory: The Shifting Landscape of Banking Risk
AbstractIn this paper I discuss modern banks’ risk profile in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis in light of regulators’ responses, markets evolution, and stakeholders’ reactions. I then suggest risk mapping as a key analysis tool for top management to overcome the shortcomings of traditional risk assessment highlighted by the crisis. Within this approach, I present an alternative way to map risks according to severity of impact and potential management actions. Finally, I develop a risk reporting structure geared towards providing top management with a holistic picture of their company’s risk profile based on a combination of historical data, key risk indicators, expert opinion, and creative hypotheses.
