JOHNSTON, R.I., USA—To help CFOs prepare for the coming year, FM Global, one of the world’s largest business property insurers, is sponsoring a one-hour webcast, “Finance’s Role in Operational Risk Management: CFO Research on Building a Resilient Company,” on Wednesday, December 14, 2016, at 12 p.m. ET.
“Strong risk management is a hallmark of a well-managed company,” said Kevin S. Ingram, senior vice president and chief financial officer, FM Global. “The most progressive CFOs are not only focusing on the connection between risk management and financial performance, but also its link to being a more resilient enterprise.”
The webcast will be hosted by CFO Research Services, the research unit of CFO Publishing Corporation which publishes CFO magazine, and will include a panel discussion by experts focused on:
- The extent to which CFOs believe their firms need to be more resilient, and whether they have modeled worst-case scenarios or tested recovery plans
- The explicit connections that CFOs see between revenues/earnings volatility and management of operational risk
- The operational threats to their business that CFOs see, both currently and emerging over the next two years
- The extent to which companies have defined loss prevention and mitigation strategies
- The CFOs’ larger view on the role of finance and the CFO in managing operational risks
Webcast panelists are: Eric Jones, operations vice president and global manager of Business Risk Consulting, FM Global; Amy Brachio, partner, global and Americas advisory risk leader, EY; and Brian Dunch, partner, PwC.
