Someone once said without risk, there’s no reward. But in our industry, managing risk isn’t so much about the rewards (although we do always want to be profitable). It’s more about giving customers and stakeholders peace of mind.
We work within a highly regulated industry. That’s why our risk experts are so central to what we do – and how we do it. They protect our business so we can get the right results for our customers and shareholders. They help us to push the boundaries without ever crossing the line. Essentially, they make sure we have robust frameworks in place so we can keep on discovering, predicting, understanding and managing our risks.
We’re not a business that likes to stand still. We’re always looking at how we can do things better. That can mean introducing new ways of working. New approaches. New technologies. But we can’t do any of those things unless we get the go-ahead from our risk experts first.
What that means in simple terms is that you’re going to have a very important role to play here. You’ll be free to challenge us and to make suggestions about how we can be sleeker, more dynamic and a better choice for our customers. There’s no place for the status quo here. But because we also know how important it is to work responsibly, you’re going to have a very big say.
We want to set the standards for our industry. To pioneer new ways of doing things. We’re entrepreneurial, but we’re not mavericks. So we rely on our Risk teams to give us a clear controls framework. Most of all, we want to do the best job we can for our customers and our stakeholders. And sensible risk taking is a big part of that.
When it comes to the nuts and bolts of risk here, our expertise spans Actuarial, Compliance, Enterprise Risk and Financial Crime. We look after all these things globally, which means we always value different perspectives and new ideas. If you’re curious, if you’re not afraid to challenge, we think you’ll love life with us. Especially if you also love asking questions and then finding new and creative ways to answer them.
