Thu 7 September 2017 | 4.00pm Presentation followed by networking drinks from 5.00pm to 6.00pm

Are profit-based incentives consistent with risk culture and compliance?

We are pleased to present new research on risk culture in the financial services sector. This pioneering experimental study was conducted at Macquarie University in May of this year involving some 300 financial services executives. At the event you will hear first-hand what this experimental research reveals about the relationship between risk culture, incentives and the behaviour of financial services staff. This study of risk management behaviour focuses on compliance with risk limits/policy – the minimum standard currently required of finance professionals.

The presenter, Associate Professor Elizabeth Sheedy, is an expert in financial risk management based at the Macquarie Applied Finance Centre. Prior to her academic career she worked in the finance industry (Westpac, Macquarie Bank). Register now for a fascinating and engaging presentation.
