Business Risk Services launched

We are delighted to announce the launch of a new Business Risk Practice providing risk management services to corporate clients today and offering practical risk-based solutions to truly mitigate, manage, and optimise risk for our clients.

Our experienced team of risk practitioners and actuaries combine qualitative and quantitative methods to a variety of business problems to deliver real business insights and impact. This bespoke service includes risk methodology, appetite and culture, enterprise wide or specific deep dive risk assessments, project risk management and risk adjusted budgeting and forecasting.

Nick Salter, senior partner at Barnett Waddingham, says: "I am pleased to announce the launch of our new business risk practice which will help companies better manage the many risks within their business.  It comes at a time when businesses are operating in a more complex and uncertain environment but must take risks to meet their growth ambitions.  Effective risk management is now more than ever a necessity for both survival and growth.  We believe the combination of Danny’s practical business risk experience and the core actuarial skills within Barnett Waddingham can be combined to offer our clients real insight.”

The new practice is to be led by newly appointed associate, Danny Wong, who has joined Barnett Waddingham from InterContinental Hotels Group where he was director of corporate risk.

Danny Wong, associate and head of business risk services at Barnett Waddingham says: “I’m excited to join Barnett Waddingham and help develop the new business risk practice. I have spent my entire career in enterprise risk management holding both in-house and advisory roles. I’ve seen the profession evolve, learning what not-to do as well as seeing the power and potential of truly effective risk management in driving strategy, commercial decisions and real business change. ”
