Risk-taking boundaries

At KRM22, we advocate the implementation of an integrated, real-time, enterprise risk management approach which enables firms to operate at the optimal threshold of risk-taking, driving increased and sustainable shareholder returns.

In this article, I am going to introduce two important concepts related to setting boundaries for risk-taking and seek to clarify their meaning. These two concepts are Risk Appetite and Risk Capacity.

Unfortunately, there is not a definitive and universally agreed definition for these terms. Therefore, I am going to provide a definition based on how we think about these terms and use them in the development of the KRM22 Enterprise Risk Cockpit.
