A study on Enterprise Risk Management with special reference to Indian Banking Industry.

Enterprise risk management in business includes the methods and processes used by organizations to manage risk and seize opportunities. Indian banks operate in more volatile financial markets, and they are undergoing significant structural changes with respect to deregulation, privatization, and consolidation. Moreover, Indian banks face complex organizational and technical challenges in meeting new regulatory requirements from their central banks and the Basel II framework. Some of the key risk associated with banks in which ERM initiatives is needed are as follows: Economic and financial uncertainties.  Banking reform and structural changes.  Significant gaps in risk management capabilities.  New regulatory requirements.  Business and competitive mandates.  People and skills.  Change management.  Data and modeling tools.  Reporting and disclosure.  Strategy and execution. Three key reasons why Indian bank should adopt ERM without delay are as follows: Banks face complex risks that are highly interdependent, and an ERM framework enables a bank to manage all major risks and their interdependencies.  An ERM framework provides the overall architecture for a bank¶s risk management programme.  Empirical research and industry surveys have indicated that there are clear business benefits for adopting an ERM programme.
