Risk frameworks

'Risk frameworks' is a core technical competency for treasurers identified by the ACT's Competency Framework.

In order to explain its approach to risk management, every organisation needs a risk management framework that not only establishes the policies and processes to be followed but also articulates the risk appetite of the organisation. The process of risk management must be structured to enable visibility and support of decision making.


Identify and assess risks

'Identify and assess risks' is a core technical competency for treasurers identified by the ACT's Competency Framework.

In order to manage risk, first it must be identified, evaluated and prioritised. Strong relationships, clear communication and a straight forward process will enable treasury to work with the business in identifying financial risk - both core treasury (e.g. liquidity, working capital, foreign exchange, counterparty risk) and other financial risks that may fall under treasury’s remit (commodities, pensions etc).


Manage risks

'Manage risks' is a core technical competency for treasurers identified by the ACT's Competency Framework.

There are a variety of approaches to managing risk: Avoid, Accept, Transfer. Management techniques range from doing nothing, through changing ways of working, to undertaking external transactions that change the nature of the risk (e.g. derivatives). Select and implement the most appropriate response to a particular risk for the organisation.


Risk reporting

'Risk reporting' is a core technical competency for treasurers identified by the ACT's Competency Framework.

Stakeholders (both internal and external) need to understand how risk is being managed and whether the approach is effective. Ensure that the most appropriate risk evaluation and reporting methodology for the organisation is selected and implemented and that a feedback loop to report on remaining risks, adapt policy and refine procedures is included.
