Traditionally, ERM has been used by company to safeguard assets, reduce losses. The trend now is to integrate strategic risk management into company’s strategy development & execution process, such integration will elevate value of ERM, as it allows company to take bigger calculated risks & make bigger investments than they otherwise would have been.

Risk has always been associated with Governance, Compliance (in short, GRC), setting aside regulatory requirements for all public listed companies to practice and enforce ERM in their organization, it has been shown that companies that understand and manage ERM survive better and longer than those who do not.

Moving from managing Enterprise risks, the frameworks, principles, techniques & tools learnt in ERM can be easily applied in our personal life, except for differences in emphasis.
