Advisory Manager – Risk Transformation – Power & Utilities


Requisition # UNI00BQR

Post Date 5 days ago


Risk landscape is continuously changing due to market volatility, geopolitical crises, wide-spread economic changes, regulatory reforms and cyber threats. As a result, there has been increased pressure from the board of directors and investors to effectively monitor and manage risk. Our power & utility clients are facing downward pressure on top-line revenue growth while the costs of the risk, security, controls and compliance operating model continue to rise.
