Enterprise risk management in financial intermediation
by Stuart I. Greenbaum
International Journal of Banking, Accounting and Finance (IJBAAF), Vol. 4, No. 1, 2012

Abstract: For financial intermediaries, especially those that are public companies, enterprise risk management (ERM) is a paradigm shifting idea. In this paper, I provide an interpretation of ERM that is both historical and analytical. The origins of the idea are examined along with the appropriate definition. A distinction between risk management and risk mitigation is clarified, the value-creating potential of ERM is explained and an ERM paradox is set forth.
