In the current volatile business environment, effective and efficient day-to-day Regulatory Risk Management is critical to an organisation’s people, processes, and long-term viability. The Regulatory Risk Management department serves a vital role, given its unique position within an organisation at the crossroads of the operational, financial, accounting, and strategic functions. A proven, structured approach to assessing and developing a risk-aware culture—the core responsibility of a Regulatory Risk Management department—can help to mitigate risk across an entire organisation.

Building and sustaining such a model requires the involvement and vigilance of experienced senior Regulatory Risk Management professionals. While many organisations employ such individuals on a full-time basis, others do not want due to:

  1. Convention
  2. Organisation size, or
  3. Budgetary issues.

Regardless, Comsure’s Regulatory Risk Management Consulting (imonitor | ERM’s) specialists can provide focused expertise where and as needed:

  1. From the execution of day-to-day Regulatory Risk Management tasks; to reengineering key processes;
  2. To driving the adoption of risk-aware culture, so that an organisation can meet the challenges posed by today’s complex and emerging risks.

Limited Co-sourcing  Model

imonitor | ERM provides organisations with a thorough review of their Regulatory Risk Management department by first documenting and assessing current activities. This review includes interviewing task performers and capturing key process steps.

Following such an assessment, imonitor | ERM professionals will recommend process reengineering, which includes an in-depth comparison of current process flows with imonitor | ERM understanding of best practices.

After the reengineering, imonitor | ERM will make recommendations to improve the overall process efficiency and effectiveness of an organisation’s Regulatory Risk Management department.

Hybrid Co-sourcing  Model 

imonitor | ERM offers a more hands-on approach with the onsite presence of part-time senior Regulatory Risk Management professionals. Services include:
