Risk now forms the cornerstone of strategic planning and operational activity for housing associations.
Deregulatory measures, combined with the uncertain operating environment and the RSH’s keen focus on stress testing, add to the heightened need to have a firm grip on both sector risks and those peculiar to your own organisation. The regulator has very clear expectations, in particular on the role of Boards in ensuring risks are understood, quantified, managed and mitigated effectively. Organisations should also understand their risk appetite in relation to a range of different risks, and be able to articulate this clearly and use it as part of effective decision making.
This one-day masterclass seeks to address all of the key issues in modern risk management from the perspective of smaller housing associations.
