Risk aware sessions with
Dr Roger Miles
Head of Behavioural Risk, BP&E Global Ltd.
We partnered with leading risk-management academic and practitioner Dr Roger Miles, who specialises in advising Boards on their governance responses to behavioural risk and other intangible threats to capital value. Besides counselling private and public-sector leaders, he researches and teaches these aspects of risk at a postgraduate level.
"I led the development and delivery of a series of Risk Aware Working sessions, using highly topical case studies that engaged Martin Currie people personally in pausing to reflect on day-to-day experiences with risk in the company and the industry.
Starting from real-life scenarios, these tested how participants made sense of various risks facing them; how would they respond and make decisions, as risk managers and as human beings? During the workshops, participants explored:
- How, in practice, behavioural biases may mislead us and our clients
- How regulators see us, and we them – it is not always clearly on either side
- And, how these and other factors may induce conduct risk with clients.
With Martin Currie’s senior risk team leading the way, participants including the Martin Currie Executive team and Board Risk Committee, put a ‘behavioural approach’ into practice to make their own personal risk decisions clearer. It’s typically thoughtful of Martin Currie to use innovative, participative thinking to build risk-awareness and resilience, and so business value. It’s good to see the word continuing to spread across the financial services sector."
