In this session, global experts will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of two leading risk management frameworks covering everything from what’s good, what’s bad, what could/should be improved, how to “cherry pick” the best from both, which one is most likely to be favored by regulators globally, and much more. You might even learn a new framework or two!

Learning Objectives:
