IBF Masterclass : Why Fintechs should pay attention to Risk Management of Operational and Technology risks

20 October 2020

The FinTech industry is growing rapidly. For growth to be sustained, it is important for  FinTech firms' products and services to be viable and meet the needs of customers. The FinTech firm must also instill confidence with its ability to manage its operational and technology risks. 

Awareness and mitigation of such risks will enhance the safety of its products and services, and create a well-controlled internal environment. Both of which are important to buy-side institutions, the main target customers of FinTech firms given the institutions' need to manage third party risks in their supply chain, in compliance with regulatory and internal risk controls.   

How can FinTechs instill better risk management and internal controls to proactively manage these risks?  What are the current and emerging risks that FinTechs should be aware of, and must mitigate in their product and service offerings?  Join us for this webinar to hear insights from Industry professionals from Singapore Consultancy's Operational and Technology Risk Management (OTRM) Practice.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand the elements and the importance of a risk management discipline
  • Understand the key operational and technology risk scenarios, ongoing risks and emerging risks that should be addressed
  • Develop a deeper appreciation of the implications if such risks are not properly managed
  • Learn proactive measures that can be applied to mitigate and address these risks
