Searching for the New Normal: The Rebuilding Process for Risk Management
Third Annual Risk Conference
Theme: As we search for the "new normal" in risk management after the most significant financial crisis in 50 years, we must shift our thinking about the interrelated nature of risks, the risk-management process and the practical application of risk resolution strategies. As the risk-management landscape continues to evolve, financial practitioners, academics and regulators offer lessons learned, perspectives on headline issues and insights on recent innovations in products and practices in the financial services industry.

Objective: For risk practitioners, the challenge of managing risk remains as difficult as ever. In light of the historic events that have transpired over the past two years, today's business climate presents risk practitioners with unprecedented complexity and challenges for management decision-making. This conference will provide practical insights into the workings of risk management. Panel discussions will address the challenges of capital planning, the link between compensation and risk management, the current state of commercial real estate and the role of financial modeling in risk mitigation. In addition, attendees will receive insights from a panel of chief risk officers and from a chief executive officer, as they share their strategies for managing risk at their respective organizations.
This conference is not open to the media or the general public. Participants are requested to use discretion in sharing the content of the conference with professional colleagues. The use of electronic recording devices is prohibited.
