2024 Investment Risk Benchmarking Survey

The investment landscape has undergone significant change since we conducted our last Investment Risk survey in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic, geopolitical issues, and the inflationary environment, just to name a few, highlight the ever-present investment risks. At the same time, new investment risks have surfaced. Climate risk and managing alternative asset risk ─ or including alts as part of a multi-asset class model (MAC) ─ now pose significant risk management challenges.

This study identifies several key issues that relate to your firm’s risk management and best practices aimed at addressing these issues.

Take the Cutter Benchmarking Survey to see where you stand.

The study explores your firm’s capabilities within the following key categories:

Organization and Governance

Structure for investment risk, including roles and responsibilities and how your firm governs its practices.

Investment Risk Capabilities

Capabilities around best practice risk models, methodologies, and reporting.

Investment Risk Types

Capabilities for each of the investment risk types covered: market, credit, counterparty, climate, and MAC risks.

Data Management

Processes for data integration and validation, maintenance and storage, and access.


System support for the processes of investment risk.
