For finance executives, the ability to manage risk strategically isn’t just necessary for reducing potential losses. Businesses also stand to gain from having their results shielded from the potentially negative effects of operational risks. By projecting financial solidity, companies can repel upstart competitors, and grow more appealing to stakeholders such as lenders and investors.

As the role of CFOs has transformed from that of narrow number- cruncher to expansive strategic thinker, an understanding of risk management has become a key responsibility. By gauging the dimensions of the company’s appetite for risk, finance executives can position themselves to make sure that any threats—whether already present or stealthily emerging—can be easily recognized and accurately assessed. In an environment that continues to redefine volatility (from the Brexit vote to the outcome of the U.S. presidential election), it’s up to CFOs to find and implement the tools that will enable risk to be continuously managed.
