Integrating risk management into strategic objectives vital to stay ahead

PwC rated as a Leader by ALM Intelligence for Enterprise Risk Management

ALM Intelligence’s report ‘Enterprise Risk Management Consulting’ looked at 25 providers of ERM services and evaluated them on a three-level scale based on their breadth, depth and client impact. 

Commenting on the strengths of PwC, the report states that “PwC is on the forefront of the movement to integrate risk management into corporate strategic steering processes. The firm is continuously evolving its service offering and arsenal of risk methodologies and tools to deliver forward-looking and actionable insights into existing and emerging risks to meet the needs of leadership. It also helps clients stay ahead of their dynamic risk landscapes and instil greater confidence in selected strategies, particularly those that require taking on meaningful additional risk.”

ALM also states that “ERM consulting providers offer clients strategic advice on selecting and designing an appropriate ERM framework, as well as in designing and implementing the organisational structures and processes that support the consistent execution of this framework across the organisation.”

ALM identifies PwC as ‘best in class’ for Operating System.  They highlight that “PwC works collaboratively with clients to guide their selection of an ERM operating model and strategy appropriate to their organisation and then deploys a hybrid top-down, bottom-up approach to embed a universal understanding of acceptable risk throughout the organisation in a manner that meets regulatory, business, and strategic objectives.

It goes on to say that “PwC’s Risk Consulting practice helps clients achieve “Risk Advantage” by delivering a globally consistent and structured, yet flexible service offering from strategy to execution, with the aim of helping clients obtain greater value from their risk management programs. It offers a breadth of targeted services, as well as comprehensive programs that focus on maturing client capabilities at every level in the risk organisation.” 

Commenting on achieving the Vanguard rating, Dennis Chesley, Global Risk Consulting leader, said: “We are delighted to be named a leader in this ALM Vanguard.  We aim to work closely with all of our clients to help them manage risk as part of their strategic planning and execution.  We also aim to instill confidence by helping clients to determine whether or not they are taking enough risks to achieve their business objectives.”
