    To DC or not DC? Should you implement a Defined Contribution (DC) pension scheme Paul Hamilton – Partner and Head of Higher Education and Martin Willis – Associate, Workplace Health and Wealth Recorded: Jul 11 2017 44 mins
    With Defined Benefit (DB) schemes in the Higher Education sector seeing a steady increase in costs, many institutions are now considering whether to move a proportion of their staff onto a DC scheme.

Therefore the key to a successful DC launch is getting the right provider, the right level of benefits and ensuring that you are engaging with staff in a way that helps them to see the potential. During this 45 minute webinar we hope to give you an understanding of the key issues when thinking about setting up a DC scheme.

  • Mastering Operational Risk. Theory and Practice in a single package.
    Mastering Operational Risk. Theory and Practice in a single package. Boris Agranovich, Calvin Lee Recorded: Jun 27 2017 62 mins
    Join me and our guest, Calvin Lee, Operations Director at RISKID, for a lively discussion as we aim to dispel confusion surrounding many of the elements of the Operational Risk framework.


    Operational risk is perhaps the most significant risk organizations face. Virtually every major loss that has taken place during the past 30 years, from Enron, Worldcom and Baring's Bank to the unauthorized trading incident at Société Générale and the subprime credit crisis, has been driven by operational failures.

    Many financial institutions have spent millions of dollars trying to develop a robust framework for measuring and managing operational risk. Yet, in spite of this huge investment, for many firms developing a viable operational risk management (ORM) program remains an elusive goal.

    This webinar is designed for both current students of the “Mastering Operational Risk” - http://www.globalriskacademy.com/p/orm online course and for other busy risk professionals who are interested in studying both theoretical and practical application of ORM but don’t have time to attend in-person classes.

    The goal is three-fold:

    1. Existing students will be able to understand more on how to work with the RISKID tool and get an opportunity to ask questions about the subject matter.
    2. People who are planning to join the course will get some explanation in what is the course about, how the e-learning system works.
