About the Event:
Financial institutions, governments, policymakers and regulators are all seeking growth and stability in an uncertain world. The Global Risk Institute in Financial Services (GRI) responds to the needs of the private and public sectors for better intelligence, information and training regarding risk in the financial services sector.

Founded by the public and private sectors in Canada and now expanding internationally, GRI's mandate is to develop applied and integrative research in financial risk and enhance risk education for organizations around the world. Through research and education programs, GRI builds integrated risk management capacity for private and public sector risk professionals. The institute also acts as a hub, stimulating evidence-based debate between regulators, practitioners and academics engaged in risk.

Cutting across industry sub-sectors and the different vantage points of the private sector, regulators, central banks and academia,GRI creates new approaches to risk, and also helps its member organizations build innovative and practical strategies that better manage the balance between risk and opportunity in financial services.
