Diversification and transparency
Interesting that I've been asked to return to a Community Housing Cymru conference, this time to talk about risk as a route to diversification and transparency - both critical needs for housing associations as they grapple with the changing needs of society, changing funding arrangements and changing governance.
I say interesting as in this next phase of my career - 50% Group Head of Risk at Associated British Ports and 50% doing my own thing as Potentiality UK - I am doing an increasing amount of work with organisations who get that risk is not just downside and that managing risk requires a more holistic approach to thinking how to seize upside uncertainties and how to defend again the downsides.
I'm excited to be working again with ex KPMG colleague Eleanor Winton - more from our collaboration here very soon.
But for now, I wanted to share that I think CHC have got it right - managing risk is about managing diversification and managing transparency.
