The financial industry is one of the most adept at risk management. Banks and credit unions realize the importance of a standardized risk assessment, as it facilitates accurate comparisons between risks across the business, and helps prioritize where limited resources should be allocated.
We created a free downloadable financial risk assessment template for Excel. This template is perfect for banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions to take the next step in their risk assessment process. Within the template, we recommend a few key best practices for how to organize your risk assessments in order to collect the most actionable data, which can then be re-aggregated to roll up to address risk categories pre-defined by the OCC and other regulatory bodies.
Once you’ve input your data, our financial risk assessment template automatically generates a heatmap to give you insight into your most critical risks.
