There is no such thing as business innovation without risk. Whether you are developing new business areas, tapping into new market segments or introducing new products, all of the processes involve risks. Proactive risk management provides security.

Risk management

Introduction and development of a holistic, value-oriented risk management system:

  • Working with top management to develop a risk policy that conforms with the Law on Control and Transparency in Business (KonTraG).

  • Determining risk-based capital reserves and calculating risk limits for types of risks based on business areas – in accordance with the Minimum Requirements for Risk Management (MaRisk) from the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin).

  • Implementation of processes – from risk identification to reporting.

  • Creating a risk manual.

  • Providing training for all managers and key persons and increasing their awareness of risk.

Risk quantification

Developing a risk profile for each department through risk quantification and risk aggregation:

  • Coaching during initial risk identification in workshops with the risk bearers.


  • Assessment of individual risks based on a company-specific risk scale, focusing on impacts on the income statement and balance sheet.

Agreeing on assumptions, determination of beta factors, preparation of and support for impairment tests:

  • Development of a computer-aided DCF model to provide a valuation of company divisions and investments.


  • Validation of premises and forecasts.
