Protectionism, nationalism and fragmentation: setting risk appetite in a complex trade environment
Dynamic companies are updating their global strategy to respond to the risks and opportunities of the new global trade environment, whether it’s dealing with tariffs and trade sanctions or taking advantage of environmental projects. The risk manager needs to support the business in adjusting its risk appetite to the new parameters. This session asks what triggers a revision of the company’s risk appetite and how the topic is addressed between the board, executive management and the risk management function.
More broadly the speakers will consider what opportunities there are for European businesses in this reshaping of global trade relationships and what measures the European Union may adopt to reduce barriers.
