The Risk Professionals Group Annual Forum

7- 8 June, 2022, Grand Hyatt – Amman, Jordan

Risk professionals have been forced to adapt to and deal with several changes in the industry since late 2019, the time when coronavirus started spreading.
The Covid-19 pandemic “Deprioritized Regulatory Compliance” and redirected risk management in the financial landscape in the following directions:

1. Private risk management will increasingly fill the void left by governments.
2. Long-term risks will be translated into short-term threats and opportunities.
3. People from all walks of life will become more adept at understanding risk and probability concepts.
4. Artificial intelligence and machine learning will complement human judgment and simpler modeling techniques – but will not replace them.
5. Risk managers will focus on cultivating organizational resilience, rather than mitigating specific risks.
