CERA Module C: Processes in ERM (1/2 April 2019) (Madrid)

CERA Module C: Processes in ERM

Organised by the EAA – European Actuarial Academy GmbH in cooperation with the Instituto de Actuarios Españoles.

This module deals with the challenges of implementing ERM Processes. It includes requirements on ERM Processes and the discussion of best practices. It will be presented how to define an organisation’s risk strategy, risk appetite, risk tolerances and limits. We discuss how business strategy influences risk strategy and show their necessary interaction. We demonstrate the close relationship between ERM and Value and Risk Based Management and show how financial and other risks influence the selection of strategy. We show how ERM can be appropriately imbedded in an entity’s strategic planning and discuss the Own Risk and Solvency Assessment. We present the application of an internal risk control process. In the context of ERM reports to different stakeholders are required (management, supervisory body, regulators, public disclosure). We give an overview of the different reports and the main contents. Further we show examples of communication processes in the context of ERM. During the seminar we present case studies to discuss the main subjects.


The seminar is open to anybody who is interested in obtaining comprehensive skills on Enterprise Risk Management.
During this seminar, you will not need your laptop.
