Network Risk Reporting Working Group
The Network Risk Reporting Working Group builds on RIM’s mission and vision:
The working group will establish reporting guidelines and recommendations for MFIs of different tier levels as a group or network in an aggregated, meaningful, reasonable and appropriate way. The resulting guidelines will establish recommendations for network risk reporting and will include social and financial factors.
Expected outputs/planned accomplishments:
Recommendations or guidelines for network risk reporting within MIVs or MFI networks. The guidelines should give general and specific recommendations on network risk reporting with the following scope:
- All risk areas of the RMGM should be covered.
- The focus of network risk reporting should be quantitative.
- A clear recommendation on which risk data can be aggregated and which data should be reported separately.
- A paper (approximately 5-10 pages) and an MS Excel model.
Network Risk Reporting Working Group Details
Start date: Q2 2016
Period of time (estimated): 1-2 years
Frequency of meetings: Quarterly
Background: RIM has established the Risk Management Graduation Model (RMGM) framework as a meaningful tool and set of guidelines for risk management best practices. Using the RMGM framework, MFIs can establish a risk management framework based on its size and the scope of operations. But for stakeholders and shareholders of network banks and MFIs, it can be a challenge to receive coherent risk management reports for at the group level.
