Africa Risk Management Banking Forum – The Risk Management Continuum
IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, together with FT Live and This is Africa present the Africa Risk Management Banking Forum, a two-day event that will help African financial institutions understand, formulate, and implement effective risk management strategies and processes.

The forum will feature high-level panel discussions and presentations from leading voices in the risk management arena, including regulators, academics, and banking chief executives and board members.

Discussions will focus on timely topics, including regulatory challenges, risk governance, the liquidity conundrum, market trends in Africa and the ongoing lessons from the 2008 financial crisis. The conference is aimed at senior executives and others with a keen interest in gaining valuable insight into risk management and Africa’s growing role on the global financial stage.  

Taking risk is an inherent aspect of all business activity, and sound risk management practices are essential to navigating a path to sustainable growth and long-term value. This is true today more than ever. Recent global financial crises and rapid economic change in Africa have underscored the need for the continent’s financial institutions and governments to implement sound risk management and governance practices. Effective risk management helps highlight and minimize potential problems, in turn attracting capital, protecting against losses, and instilling confidence in customers, regulators, investors, and rating agencies.
