Global concerns about financial risk have been increasing in the light of growing volatility and uncertainty in global financial markets.  In this climate, enterprises of all kinds and sizes want robust financial risk management frameworks that satisfy compliance demands, contribute to better decision making, enhance performance and help maintain the enterprise’s good reputation.  KPMG China’s FRM professionals work with financial institutions and other corporate and public clients to attain these objectives.

Credit risk, liquidity risk, the risks of issuing or dealing in financial instruments and the risks inherent in treasury operations are just some of the financial issues that are a concern for businesses.  The challenge is compounded by an increasingly demanding and complex regulatory environment.
