Auditing conduct risk

When we talk about ‘Conduct Risk’ we often go on to describe the risk of customer or client product controls failing, or maybe, ‘treating customers unfairly’. And, as we know, conduct is on the radar of regulators and ombudsmen, leading to penalties or even revocation of a trading licence. This course leads you through strategies and processes for auditing this subject.

Who should attend?

The course is open to all.

What will I learn?

After completion you will be able to:

  • Identify and define the difference between conduct risk and other types of risk
  • Understand how conduct risk can be qualitatively or quantitatively measured
  • Be able to undertake an audit of conduct risk within your organisation.

This course is accompanied by a manual that contains course notes, examples and practical exercises.
