Curry on Enterprise Risk Management

Thomas J. Curry spoke to community bankers about what makes a community bank successful and the importance of effective risk management during the 8th Annual Community Bankers Symposium hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, the FDIC, and OCC.
[T]he environment is getting better for small banks and thrifts…[W]e are seeing real improvements in asset quality, liquidity, underwriting, and capital, among other indicators. The number of problem banks is beginning to stabilize, and the volume of problem assets is falling.

Clearly, the ones who made it [through the financial crisis] had stronger capital, better liquidity management, better underwriting, and, in most cases, smaller asset concentrations. They are the ones who stuck to their knitting, served their communities, and didn’t try to reach too far for profits.
Curry continued by discussing subjects of risk management, and in particular enterprise risk management including topics of capital planning, stress testing, and operational risk. Curry encouraged bankers to look at the OCC’s Semiannual Risk Perspective, which the OCC published for the first time this past spring.
