Editor's pick of the conversations that took place in Amsterdam

"Without risk there is no reward"

Without risk there is no reward. Worse than that, adopting a risk-averse strategy actually causes more problems than it seeks to solve.

These were the conclusions drawn by the former UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, as he addressed a packed room at RiskMinds International 2018 in Amsterdam.

"You should study risk taking, not risk management"

So said Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Trader and Scholar and Risk Engineer at NYU-Tandon School. 

Listen to him share his thoughts on our understanding of risk, the human factor, and what our grandmothers got right.

Chief Risk Officer: mission impossible?

You don’t often hear of risk professionals being compared to Tom Cruise, but when it comes to the plethora of risks they have to face, they certainly have a mission impossible.

An expert panel of CROs gathered in Amsterdam to debate the topics highest on the agenda of bank strategy.
