Risk Management

Leverage on our expertise in


Business is all about taking risk. Effective management of a firm in order to achieve its desired goals & to preserve the firm’s capital requires calculated risk-taking, which is in line with the firm’s propensity for risk.

Not taking risks one doesn’t fully understand is often the best form of risk management.” – Raghuram G. Rajan

Risk Governance

At H. Pierson, we value the extent to which the Board & Senior Management of a company can influence its risk management activities irrespective of the institutionalization of a unit with dedicated risk management functions. The need for sound corporate governance, as well as risk governance practices are highlighted in the CBN, SEC & FRC Codes of Corporate Governance. These are also a prominent feature in most international risk management standards e.g. COSO, ISO 31000.

To that end, we offer our clients a set of standalone solutions that are geared specifically towards establishing sound risk governance practices within the client’s firm.

This solution reviews the performance of the Board as a whole, as well as individual members for the period under review. The methodology employed by our team is in line with the requirements in the CBN, SEC & FRC Codes of Corporate Governance, as well as the IFC Corporate Governance methodology.
