    What is financial risk management?

    Financial risk management is identifying, analysing and managing risks that can impact your organisation’s financial performance. Typically, it involves identifying potential financial risks and developing strategies to manage or mitigate them.

    Financial risk can happen in many ways outside your organisation’s control, such as a change in interest rates or political uncertainty. In these instances, your organisation should have strategies in place to reduce the risk to your business if any of these external factors should change and impact your financial state. Internally, financial risks can occur with instances of fraud or internal errors, or risks of going into liquidation. As with external risks, your organisation must have plans in place to counteract any financial risks.

    The goal of financial risk management is to minimise the negative impact of internal and external risks on your organisation’s financial performance and ensure its long-term sustainability. Effective financial risk management can help organisations avoid significant losses and maintain financial stability.
