RMA/FCInsight Survey to Explore the State of Integrated Risk Management

PHILADELPHIA , Dec. 4, 2019 /CNW/ -- The Risk Management Association (RMA) and FCInsight are launching a survey to establish the maturity of integrated risk management (IRM) in financial institutions and other industries.

IRM is a process that improves decision making and enhances business value by integrating risk intelligence into activities across the enterprise, such as strategic planning and strategy execution, investment decision making, project portfolio management, enterprise performance management, third-party performance management, and information governance.

The RMA/FCInsight survey will gauge the maturity of IRM at participating financial institutions and make clear what's needed to prioritize and improve IRM initiatives that can deliver the most business value.

The survey questions will assess the maturity of the integration of risk intelligence into important business activities, including strategic planning and strategy execution, investment decision making, project portfolio management, enterprise performance management, third-party performance management, and information governance.

"Integrated risk management takes risk management to the next level by stressing the enterprise-wide business value of risk intelligence, and the opportunities for improving critical decision making," said French Caldwell, Founder and Chief of Research, FCInsight. "Given the large investments that financial institutions are already making in risk management and GRC technology, IRM initiatives can ensure those investments not only enable better risk management and compliance, but also drive real top-line business returns."

Edward J. DeMarco, Jr. , RMA's Chief Administrative Officer and Director of Operational Risk, urged financial institutions to participate in the survey. "Finance, IT, risk management, compliance, audit, third-party risk, and other GRC leaders are encouraged to register," he said. "The thoughtful questions will prompt a productive evaluation of their own organizations, and the subsequent survey report will provide a benchmark to see how they compare to others in the industry."

Participants who complete the survey will receive FCInsight's report, 2020 GRC Planning Guidance, and a complimentary copy of the IRM survey report to share with their organizations.

To participate in the RMA/FCInsight  "The State of Integrated Risk Management" Survey, please contact Edward J. DeMarco, Jr. at edemarco@rmahq.org or French Caldwell at french@frenchcaldwell.com.

    Boeing Considers Pausing Production of 737 Max

    Boeing Co. is considering temporarily halting production of the 737 Max as regulatory clearance for the grounded jet's return looks increasingly likely to slip beyond January 2020, said a person familiar with the matter. While the board is also studying another slowdown in output for its best-selling jet, executives are convinced a temporary pause would be less disruptive, said the person, who asked not to be identified as the discussions are confidential. The Wall Street Journal reported earlier that the production plans have become more urgent as the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration signaled it wouldn't certify the revamped Max this year.

The French-German jet maker notched firm orders for both single-aisle and widebody jets last week and also won a commitment from Qantas, the Australian flagship airline. Meanwhile, Boeing faced more headwinds amid reports that the Federal Aviation Administration boss told Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg to stop pressuring his agency to return its 737 Max to service and telling the public it will be recertified soon.

    Bankers Are Playing With Fire, Once Again

    In Europe, capital requirements are being softened. The reining in of bank risk after the financial crisis is giving way to a loosening of the rules just as the desperation for yield makes banks more willing to gamble. This seems imprudent: Although banks are safer than they were before Lehman Brothers imploded, critical weaknesses remain.

    Google warns Turkish partners over new Android phones amid dispute

    Google has told its Turkish business partners it will not be able to work with them on new Android phones to be released in Turkey, after the Turkish competition board ruled that changes Google made to its contracts were not acceptable. Turkey's competition authority had fined Google 93 million lira ($17.4 million) in September 2018 for violating competition law with its mobile software sales. Turkey's competition board ruled on Nov. 7 that changes which Google made in its contracts with its business partners in line with the board's demands were inadequate as they still did not allow changes to the default search engine.

    Indonesia hits European Union with WTO lawsuit over palm oil

    Indonesia has filed a World Trade Organization lawsuit against the European Union over plans to phase out palm oil-based biofuel for cars, the trade ministry said. The action could escalate a trade dispute between Indonesia -- the world's top palm oil producer - and the EU, which plans to end its use of biofuels by 2030, citing concerns over widespread deforestation caused by the sector. The EU earlier imposed duties on imports of subsidised biodiesel from Indonesia saying it was needed to level the playing field for its producers.

    Here’s the formula for paying no federal income taxes on $100,000 a year

    The question of how much can we earn without paying federal income taxes is relatively easy to answer for most people. The standard deduction for a married couple is $24,400 in 2019 (if both are under 65 years old), and the top of the 0% capital-gains tax bracket is $78,750. With our daughter, we also qualify for the child tax credit ($2,000), so we could actually generate another $13,333 per year in dividends or capital gains, taxed at 15%.
