Financial Institutions

Marsh's Financial Institutions Practice works with clients to provide effective risk mitigation strategies that can help them deal with an array of challenges by providing consultative and risk transfer services.

The global credit crisis, regulatory changes, and massive government interventions are three of the factors that have significantly altered the landscape of the financial institutions (FI) industry. It is against this backdrop that risk and capital management have moved to the forefront of virtually every corporate agenda.

Customers, shareholders, and regulators are demanding that institutions enhance risk management processes and techniques that balance risk and reward.

With this increased focus on risk, FI risk managers are challenged to validate their risk treatment strategies. Risk managers must demonstrate thoughtful planning to identify exposures and take appropriate action to mitigate risk.
