What is a Finance Risk and Materiality Assessment?

A finance risk assessment is the process of analyzing the specifics of different risks faced by your financial organization. There are a variety of reasons why a risk assessment may be conducted; in the finance industry, one of the most important types of risk assessments is a finance risk and materiality assessment. A thorough risk and materiality assessment will not only help to reveal gaps in financial planning or financial controls, but it will also provide confidence to the board, stakeholders and other third parties that your company’s financial planning and due diligence is adequate.

Through a finance risk and materiality assessment, your organization can identify crucial risks that may have been overlooked in the past. This proactivity can ensure the proper resources are allocated to address these risks and avoid financial shortcomings or disasters before they occur.


A financial risk and materiality assessment can help organizations to assess the possibility of a variety of risks from manifesting. For example:

  • Profits being lower than anticipated
  • Experiencing loss events (e.g. a natural disaster, branch robbery, or lender liability)
  • Economic downturn
  • Problems within financial operations processes
  • Cross-functional risks and processes that may impact other departments (e.g. data entry error, over or under-forecasting, or a lack of communication altogether).

Through LogicManager, your organization can assess these risks, document controls and perform testing and metric collection to ensure that the controls are operating effectively.
