Network Risk Reporting Working Group

The Network Risk Reporting Working Group builds on RIM’s mission and vision:

The activities of the Network Risk Reporting Working Group build on RIM’s mission and vision by providing a forum for establishing  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. These guidelines and recommendations will serve the industry and assist adoption of RIM’s Graduation Model within network institutions.

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 Graduation Model 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.

Start date:  Q2 2016

Period of time (estimated): 1-2 years

Frequency of meetings: Quarterly

Background: RIM has established the Graduation Model framework as a meaningful tool and set of guidelines for risk management best practices. Using the Graduation Model 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.
