Risk Management as a Competitive Advantage – 
Global Risk Trends 

We know how quickly the FinTech industry moves, so DIFC FinTech Hive has created FinTalks – powered by startups – as a collaborative forum to connect with other FinTech, Islamic FinTech, RegTech, and InsurTech enthusiasts to keep up-to-date on the latest industry technology trends and developments.

The fifth edition of FinTalks, brought to you by Global Risk Clinic , will present risk management as a competitive advantage.

Risk management refers to the process of identifying, assessing and controlling threats to an organization's capital and earnings. These threats, or risks, could stem from a wide variety of sources, for example, financial uncertainty, legal liabilities, strategic management errors, accidents and natural disasters. GRC views risk management as a key component in the pursuit of a successful business strategy and a way to improve stakeholder satisfaction and secure anticipated profit.

The takeaways from the session would be:
1. Better Understanding of Risk Management and its benefits
2. Tools to Manage Risk Better
3. Understanding of Current Trends in Risk Management
