Risk culture

NHFIC’s risk culture and principles guide everyday behaviour in the organisation.

NHFIC strives to:

  • maintain the highest professional and ethical standards
  • align any staff incentives and rewards to encourage behaviour consistent with its risk appetite
  • provide an environment where employees are empowered to the full extent of their abilities and that fosters innovation and learning within business practices
  • monitor, stress test and re-evaluate risk ensuring management information systems and risk reporting accurately reflect the underlying risk
  • only provide facilities after carefully and appropriately considering the risk implications
  • be intolerant of regulatory and compliance breaches.
