Risk management

It is essential for the protection of the reputation, the maintenance of the excellent financial strength and the securing of the sustainable profitability of the LLB Group that risks are dealt with prudently. Risk management is based on risk policy and encompasses the systematic identification and assessment, reporting, management and monitoring of credit risks, market risks, liquidity risks and operational risks as well as asset liability management (ALM). The LLB Group applies an appropriate organisational and methodological framework for assessing and managing risk (see chapter “Risk Management”).

Internal control system

The internal control system (ICS) contributes to increasing risk transparency within the company as an integral part of our Group-wide risk management by monitoring the risks in the relevant business processes through effective control processes. The LLB Group applies standards that are customary in the banking industry for this sub-system of risk management.
