Emphasising the importance of managing third-party risk

Financial institutions engage with third parties as part of normal business activities, but such third-party relationships can introduce a range of potential risks.

Failure to adequately manage and mitigate these third-party risks can expose your financial institution to a range of adverse consequences. They span substantial financial loss and operational disruption, to potentially severe reputational damage.

As a consequence, the critical importance of completing thorough and robust due diligence before selecting and entering into any third-party relationship cannot be overstated.

Proactively managing these risks not only protects your financial institution, but can also offer opportunities for growth and differentiation.

What is third-party risk management for financial institutions?

Third-party relationships can include, but are not limited to vendors, suppliers, outsourced services, independent consultants, referral arrangements, merchant payment processing services, and more.

Managing the potential risk that such third parties can introduce is a regulatory requirement for financial institutions.

Regulatory requirements and increasingly complex third-party risks – integrity, identity, financial, ESG, operational and cyber risks – and more regulatory scrutiny of financial institutions’ third-party risk management programmes underscore a growing need for holistic third-party risk solutions.

Many financial institutions, however, may not have the budget or internal resources to manage third-party risk efficiently and effectively.
