International Heads of Risk Dialogue

Ten years after the global financial crises, economic indicators suggest the world is finally getting back on track, but this upbeat picture masks continuing underlying concerns. The global economy still faces a mix of long-standing vulnerabilities and newer threats that have emerged or evolved in the years since the crisis.

Geopolitical risks have become omnipresent in a world where wars can be started with a Twitter post. As the Trump regime favors deregulation, regulators in rest of the world continue to issue new regulations especially regarding disruptive new technologies. Prominent cyber threats and data breach incidents in the last year alone have made the need for enhanced investments in data protection, privacy and cyber security crystal clear. However, new risks now coming to the fore, such as the proliferation of virtual currencies, new concerns about corporate conduct and a responsible approach to the use of artificial intelligence will be just as important to take into account. Implementation of Basel as well as IFRS standards have also been keeping risk managers busy.

Just as global risks are increasingly complex, systemic and cascading, so our responses must be increasingly interconnected across the numerous global systems that make up our world. Multi-stakeholder dialogue remains the keystone of the strategies that will enable us to build better economies.
