Traditionally, the risk management processes within financial institutions
have tended to operate independently of its strategic and capital management processes.
At QED we believe that to maximise their combined value, organisations need to ensure
that these disciplines are aligned. By incorporating risk management into the strategic
and capital management processes, organisations can take both the risk and capital
implications of their business decisions into account.
