Risk management framework

As part of our overall governance strategy, we’ve developed a risk management framework that covers risks across all operations. The framework is actively managed and reviewed by the Board and committees. The material risks covered by this framework include investment governance, liquidity, insurance, fraud, operations, strategy and outsourcing. In addition, ongoing monitoring includes a risk radar to identify any potential future risks.
