2020 Investment Risk Management Survey


By participating in this Cutter Benchmarking survey, you will gain a clear picture of how your risk practices stack up against best practices as tracked in the Cutter Associates Capability ModelTM. The resulting report will evaluate your firm's processing capabilities and overall effectiveness by compiling your results and providing actionable recommendations related to your investment risk management challenges.


This survey will cover:

Risk Organization

Policies and procedures, structure, culture, governance and how risk management is viewed within your firm

Market Risk

How your firm supports the management of market risk (the impact of economic events such as changes in interest rates or spreads on portfolio market value)

Credit Risk

The level of support for managing the risk of failure of an obligor to repay debt

Counterparty Risk

How your firm manages the risk of failure to complete a transaction with a counterparty

Risk Data Management

How risk data is gathered, maintained, and made available

Risk Technology

The systems, processes, and controls at your firm for data access, workflow, and data storage


What will you receive as a result of your participation?

Upon completion of the survey, participants will receive a flash report that compares your firm’s data management practices to Cutter’s capability model. Members of Cutter Research that complete the survey will also receive a detailed, and personalized report on how your firm compares to other firms in each of the capability areas. Non-members will have the option to purchase a full report. There is no charge to complete the survey and receive your flash report.
