Risk Management for Financial Service Firms: Getting It Right

Join Dr. Susan Mangiero and other esteemed speakers in Seattle on October 5,2012 for an important conference entitled "Managing Risk in a Complex World." Part of the University of Washington Law, Business and Entrepreneurship Program, this event features speakers such as Mr. Bill Ayer, Chairman of the Alaska Air Group. Dr. Mangiero, a managing director with FTI Consulting's Forensic and Litigation Consulting practice, is a CFA charterholder, certified Financial Risk Manager, Accredited Investment Fiduciary Analyst and the author of Risk Management for Pensions, Endowments and Foundations (John Wiley & Sons). She will be joined on the podium by Steven Ramirez with the Loyola University Chicago School of Law, Matthew McBrady with Silver Creek Capital Management and Richard Painter with the University of Minnesota School of Law to discuss how banks, asset managers and other types of financial services firms are managing risks at a time of great regulatory and market uncertainty.

According to Dr. Mangiero, a financial expert in the areas of risk management, valuation, performance reporting, asset allocation, fees and investment fiduciary best practices, "Headlines are replete with bad news about organizations that did not take risk management seriously. Those banks, asset managers and other types of financial services firms that put internal controls in place and regularly measure and monitor their exposures are in a much better position to attract and retain new clients. With so much litigation and regulatory enforcement about risk management lapses, now is not the time to cut back on spending money for compliance."
