iPad Risk Books
Risk models only have value if they are used effectively in combination with limit management and control process.
While a conventional view of the control function is that it requires and relies on reports, the key is not generation of quantitative numbers,
formatted in ten different cuts; it is the interpretation and application of the analysis behind reports that matters.
The objective of a risk function is to not just gather data, run reports, submit and analyze them;
it is to ensure that unpleasant surprises and their impact is limited. While you can't control the timing and magnitude of such surprises,
a well managed and well run risk function can help manage expectations as well as plan ahead for unexpected shocks.
Limits play a major role in achieving that objective. But educated users, managers and board members are the ones who really make it work.
