Firmwide Risk Control Management

The Risk Control Management Group’s primary function is to instill an effective risk and control framework to identify and remediate control issues, with a sense of urgency, regardless of the source.

The Team partners with other control disciplines, e.g., Compliance, Risk and Audit, among others and works in partnership on the development of new, and existing control functions and protocols and provides a centralized view of and from all control functions, assisting in immediate, real time problem detection and escalation. This process enables the firm to engage the appropriate teams in a timely manner, and provide the ability to quickly remediate critical control issues across the impacted areas of the firm. While ultimate responsibility for the effectiveness of the control environment rests with the LOB CEOs and the Functional Leaders, the Risk Control Management Group will work closely with the Lines of Business, Legal, Compliance and Technology and other groups across the Firm. The team closely tracks identified issues and facilitates their remediation.
