Enterprise Risk Management

Measuring and Managing Enterprise-Wide Risk to Improve Organizational Performance and Profitability

Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is a discipline by which First Federal measures, monitors, and controls various types of risk on a bank-wide basis.  Our Board of Directors, Senior Management, and staff remain very involved in administering the policies and procedures in place in order to mitigate our risk factors. 

At First Federal Bank of Louisiana, we use key risk indicators to improve our organization’s risk strategy. 

We understand how key risk indicators are implemented as assessment tools for effective ERM.  We have a bank-wide initiative to minimize operational risk exposure and a risk management system that includes bank awareness and accountability throughout all lines of business.

We have an ERM framework that works to mitigate risk and uses measures and metrics to identify, manage, and combat enterprise risk.  Our main goal is to lessen the influence and impact of market conditions on our business and the bank’s assets.

 

Major Risk Focus:

  • Strategic Risk
  • Credit Risk
  • Liquidity Risk
  • Reputation Risk
  • Market Risk (Interest Rate Risk)
  • Price Risk
  • Operational Risk
  • Compliance/Legal Risk

Each line of business is assessed with specific guidelines to accurately measure the Quantity and Quality of risk. This management is used to derive the Aggregate Risk (summary judgment that reflects the level of supervisory concern) and the Direction (likely changes to the risk profile over the next twelve months) and is reflected on a Risk Assessment Grid.
