Risk

Today's leading financial institutions understand the convergence and ever-increasing complexity of risk-related disciplines. Recent changes in the financial landscape have caused credit, market, liquidity and operational risk to take center stage. At the same time, growing governmental oversight has stretched internal resources and initiated profound changes in fundamental business models. Mastering the interconnectedness between various risk disciplines and harmonizing them with regulatory optimization, compliance, and IT-enabled infrastructure will be a hallmark of successful companies in the years ahead.

At Spencer Stuart, we have seen new pressures brought to bear on financial institutions of all types, including lending institutions, universal banks, broker dealers, insurance companies, private equity sponsors and asset managers. We assemble teams of experts from each field of risk and operational management to help clients achieve interdisciplinary excellence across their organizations.

We are committed to our clients’ success.

We draw upon nearly two decades of direct experience in risk management and our familiarity with the ramifications of finance, legal and policymaking changes to help organizations grow and compete effectively in a complex and rapidly changing landscape.
We help build executive teams across the most critical areas of risk and related disciplines, including credit market and operational risk management, liquidity management, capital optimization, model risk and validation, audit, analytics, data management, legal and regulatory (including Basel III standards), compliance and information technology.
In addition to recruiting outstanding executives and advising boards on a range of governance and succession issues, we also help organizations select from among top candidates for a critical role, develop up-and-coming leaders, improve the effectiveness of the top leadership team, and support strategic or cultural transformation.
