Where Is Risk Headed In 2018

Are we entering a cross road?


Risk Management has changed a lot since the financial crisis in 2007-2008. Once the Dodd-Frank regulations were passed in 2010 banks scrambled to meet regulations by hiring people who could create, validate, and implement models along with other functions such as risk governance. Small specialized consulting firms popped up all over the country in response to the large amount of work required to meet regulations. Now at the end of 2017 and heading into 2018, where is risk headed? It seems that we have passed the peak of the Dodd Frank (CCAR/DFAST) regulations and are either mid way down the trend or near the bottom of popularity in risk management for regulations.

So the question is where do new students and career professionals turn if they want to work in risk management? I think the answer is going to be specializing back in the two traditional types of risk which are credit risk and market risk. Large banks and other companies need credit risk models to help make loans to individuals and corporations. Market risk has always been big on the wealth management and hedge fund side of the industry and will continue to be a big part moving forward.
