Finance & Risks

During the last financial crisis, the losses incurred by certain institutions revealed an insufficient level of knowledge and control, by the directors and sometimes managers of the Banks, of the risk profile of their institution and of the best way of allocating their financial resources. Since then, regulators have strengthened banks’ resilience and oversight by setting standards and implementing extensive controls.

This was a necessary development, but poses a real challenge for institutions which, in this context, must continue to control their growth and profitability while ensuring that their risks and resources are carefully managed and that the regulations in force are complied with.

Ares & Co supports the directors of financial institutions by helping them to rethink their entire model, above and beyond the recommendations of the Basel Committee and the French Prudential Supervision and Resolution Authority, in particular with regard to resource allocation and risk management, thereby securing the achievement of their strategic objectives.
