Issue 115 highlights the state of risk management in Asia’s banking and financial institution industry, which leaves much to be desired. The Risk Management Special Report looks at the best practices and achievements of five banks and delves into the challenges faced in implementing their risk management solutions as well as the benefits they were able to gain as a result.

The case studies featured show that senior management commitment to the development of an integrated risk-an-return-oriented view of the business can not only helped result in greater transparency as well as control over processes, but is also essential in driving internal change and integrating functions, systems and processes.

On the topic of change and leadership, this issue features the insights of former Citicorp president and COO, Richard Braddock, as well as former president of Tesco, Terry Leahy. Also, Shiu Kuang-Si, president of Mega International Commercial Bank, discusses consolidation in the Taiwanese banking sector.
