In the financial world, risk management is the process of recognizing, evaluating and controlling threats to a firm’s capital and earnings. These threats may occur from a range of sources, including legal liabilities, financial uncertainties, strategic management errors, accidents and natural disasters. There are two types of events: positive events can be called opportunities, while negative events are classified as risks.
A risk management team prepares the risk management plan to identify, analyze and manage the risks associated with a particular project.

Risk management processes enable a company to gain a vantage from the following perspectives:
Risk management helps an organization to identify risks; it makes it easier for a company to take proactive remedial actions when they are aware of the risks.
Financial lenders are more willing to increase credit limits to organizations that have risk management activities in place. Further, companies with well-planned risk management can more easily be financially prepared when a problem arises.
Risk management not only identifies risks, it also helps in prioritizing a risk. This allows a company to plan and respond to risks in a quick and appropriate manner. This course of action saves a company money, time and physical resources.
When a company has its risk management processes in place, it passes a positive message about business. The stakeholders of the company feel that the organization they are dealing with is proactive and professional.
