Risk Management

Find A Consultant

The second line of defence has had to evolve since the global financial crisis. The importance of risk management to the first line of defence has shifted from “back office” to “business enablers” as they partner with global regulators to ensure their financial institutions can compete profitably in the new regulatory regime.

In this challenging environment, the Sheffield Haworth Risk Management team has built a reputation for a deep and robust understanding of the regulatory environment and what it means for clients, as well as a unique ability to source and attract reliable, talented professionals for a broad range of global clients.

Deep, Direct Financial Services Experience

Our Risk Management team has exceptional experience sourcing top-tier talent for risk management and other back-office functions. Our consultants have previously worked for financial institutions and advisory firms, including Morgan Stanley and PricewaterhouseCoopers, and carry a wealth of direct experience garnered over the course of multiple economic cycles.

We have successfully placed Chief Risk Officers at pre-eminent institutional investment firms and banks as well as helped build teams under those individuals as part of long-term, strategic client partnerships.
