Establishing an efficient and effective risk management framework is fundamental if insurers are to minimise (extreme) losses, reduce volatility of earnings and maximise profits. 

KPMG’s Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) methodology takes a structured, holistic approach to managing the uncertainties that businesses face.
