The U.S. economy has begun to show positive signs of a sustainable recovery. Despite a few episodes of disappointing news, the markets appear to be optimistic that 2014 will be a year of solid economic growth. With these opportunities in the economic recovery also come new challenges. Risk management will need to evolve and adapt as business expands. To avoid the pitfalls of rapid growth, financial institutions will need to build their business to focus on long-term success. This risk conference will provide participants with insights from industry leaders and regulators on risk management strategies in today’s dynamic environment. The 2014 agenda includes perspectives from senior executives through a mix of presentations and panel discussions. Topics will include interest rate risk, cyber risk and regulatory expectations in the current environment. Participants will learn about concepts, tools and approaches to better manage risk while taking advantage of new opportunities.
