RiskTalk and Corporate Purpose Network (RCP)

What is the RCP?

  • A network of senior risk officers from purposeful companies adopting innovative practices and tools (e.g. RiskTalk and others) to fulfill their corporate purpose.
  • Risk managers at purposeful companies measure and monitor ValueS at Risk.

Why Corporate Purpose?

  • Purposeful companies are conscious of their multiple commitments, values and priorities.
  • Research evidence shows that purposeful companies outperform short-term profit- oriented firms.
  • Risk managers at purposeful companies can help top management map corporate purpose, and monitor if actions and decisions are aligned with core values and commitments.
