South African Reserve Bank


The Bank has established a risk management policy to ensure that risks are managed in a co-ordinated, comprehensive and systematic manner that is consistent with internationally accepted standards and guidelines.
This policy regulates all risk management initiatives and activities, and facilitates their alignment with the Bank’s strategic and operational objectives to ensure that the risks threatening the achievement of these objectives are adequately and effectively managed at acceptable levels. The policy governs the full spectrum of strategic, financial (including credit, market and liquidity), reputational and operational risk management in the Bank. Furthermore, it specifies the risk management governance structures, general risk management principles, the Bank’s risk appetite and tolerance, impact and likelihood requirements, risk management framework and processes, and the roles and responsibilities of all stakeholders.
