A risk management system is a set of rules, documents, and events for identifying, assessing, and responding to risks, as well as for monitoring and controlling risk levels.
NSD’s risk management system, contributing to the stable development of the Russian financial market in accordance with best international standards, is focused on efficiently managing corporate risks, as well as the risks of participants in the financial market infrastructure.
The key goal of the risk management system is to ensure the stable functioning of the company’s key business lines, to support their stable development, and to guarantee the fulfillment of the company’s obligations to shareholders, clients, the regulator, and other stakeholders. Thus, risk management activities cover all NSD business lines:
- Central securities depository;
- Collateral management system;
- Payment system;
- Information services.
NSD’s risk management system allows the company to make managerial decisions based on a risk-oriented approach, to plan capital taking into account risks inherent to NSD operations, and to ensure that NSD achieves its strategic goals and fulfills its obligations to its shareholders, regulators, clients, counterparties, and other stakeholders.
When managing risks, NSD follows the Bank of Russia’s and other regulators’ requirements and recommendations, and international risk management standards, such as ISO 31000:2009 Risk Management: Principles and guidelines, COSO ERM, and CPMI IOSCO Principles for financial market infrastructures.
The organizational model of the risk management system is based on the three lines of defense model (see the picture below). In this model, structural units, in accordance with their functions, form one of the lines of defense as part of the risk management process.
