Banking Risk

Our research empowers risk management, compliance, technology, and strategy leaders at retail and corporate banks to embark on risk transformation journeys. We examine how AI, RPA, innovative data, cloud, and digital technologies bring new efficiencies and insights to Risk functions at banks including credit risk; governance, risk and compliance (GRC); and financial crime.

We help banks evaluate the rapidly expanding universe of regtech solutions and the transformative impact they will have on Risk functions. Our in-depth analyses of technology trends and the vendor landscape provide practical support for Risk technology strategies for the digital age.


Our research focuses on key areas of Risk in banking that are being reshaped by AI, digital technologies, regtech solutions, and cloud: credit risk; GRC and enterprise risk management (ERM); and financial crime including anti-money laundering (AML), Know Your Customer (KYC), and fraud.
