Principal risks

Principal risks

The management of risk is fundamental to the successful execution of our strategy and to the resilience of our operations. During 2019, the Group successfully adapted its systems, processes and controls, in preparation for regulatory changes and to address Brexit contingency plans. The Group continues to support its key markets and deliver stable and resilient services that meet our customers’ needs.

 

As LSEG’s risk culture, objectives, appetite, governance and operations are well established, these descriptions naturally do not significantly change from year to year. We have also included a category of emerging risks which are new to the Group or which are difficult to quantify due to their remote or evolving nature. In most cases, the mitigation for such risks is to establish appropriate contingency plans and monitor the development of the risk until it can be quantified and removed or included as a principal risk.

 

Further detail Our strategic risk objectives, current risk focus, a narrative description of our risk appetite, how LSEG’s risk management framework operates, as well as an overview of the CCPs risk management and operations, are well established and are not described here. Detailed information can be found in our risk management oversight supplement. Please visit: www.lseg.com/about-london-stock-exchangegroup/risk-management-oversight
