Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is more than simply a collection of policies, procedures, limits, and models. Effective risk management also requires a strong risk culture and risk governance. Risk culture is the system of values and behaviors within the organization that shapes the day-to-day decisions that we all make. Developing a risk culture is a continuous process – it is consistent with, and builds upon, our Core Values, Leadership Competencies, and Code of Business Conduct & Ethics in that it is based on a common understanding that managing risk is everyone's responsibility and creates an environment that encourages the open exchange of ideas, willingness to elevate concerns, and a commitment to "doing the right thing." As such, risk culture is a critical element of the Bank's risk management efforts.
Also critical to Fifth Third Bank's approach to Enterprise Risk Management is a Risk Appetite Framework that defines how much risk is taken by the Bank. This Risk Appetite Framework is supported by an Enterprise Risk Management Framework that defines key risk activities for the eight different risk categories of credit risk, liquidity risk, market risk, operational risk, compliance risk, legal risk, reputational risk, and strategic risk. If you are interested in helping to further develop our risk culture, consider a career within Enterprise Risk Management at Fifth Third Bank.
