Enterprise Risk Management

Mitigate business risks and maximize performance and profitability

Businesses always set aggressive goals and focus on achieving results. But sometimes results can come at a high price that can be overshadowed by the achievement of goals. Risks including inefficiencies, increased costs and loss of key resources can become the status quo in a business without a clear understanding of how they can impact long-term performance.

Aprio’s Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) team of risk advisors and operational improvement specialists help clients identify and mitigate risks that can impact revenue, cost, profitability and cashflow.

Our clients receive Big Four experience, delivered with personalized service and senior level attention. Leveraging over 30 years of risk-based consulting experience with Fortune 500 companies, we work closely with you to develop strategies and tactics to manage risks that can impede the achievement of your business objectives.

Risk occurs when there is misalignment of people, processes and technologies within any of the five functional areas of your business.

Who needs Enterprise Risk Management?

Aprio has experienced the greatest demand for ERM services across professional services, manufacturing, retail, ecommerce, technology and consumer electrons. But business risk is industry agnostic. There are several universal business conditions that can dictate the need for risk management support.

  • Overperformance High-growth companies often think in the here and now, focusing on the immediate short-term delivery needs of the business. We provide objective long-term strategies for sustainable growth that can safeguard shareholder value.
  • Business Complexity The more complex business models and operations become, the greater opportunity for hidden risk. We help support continued growth by identifying roadblocks, blind spots and gaps that can negatively impact long-term success.
  • Underperformance Poor performance or adverse events can illuminate business problems that can significantly increase a business’ risk profile. We can help businesses climb the maturity scale by plotting a course from where they are now to where they want to be.
  • Plans to transfer ownership within 5-10 years ERM can provide strategic insights to businesses planning for future transfer of ownership or sales transactions. Our solutions enable owners to take proactive steps that can enhance business value and maximize transactions.

Identifying and understanding the impact of risk

Aprio’s proven Assess, Identify & Manage (A.I.M.) methodology begins with a comprehensive risk assessment. Our assessments include both top down and bottom up interviews to gain a holistic understanding of your business. Identified risks are then plotted by likelihood of occurrence and impact to the business to effectively prioritize risks and remediation recommendations. We help business leaders “own” their business risks so they can make informed decisions on which risks to accept, mitigate, avoid or transfer.

For businesses experiencing rapid growth, we recommend Risk Management Strategies that clearly identify risks and the strategies and tactics that support business objectives.

For businesses that are underachieving on target goals, we provide Operational & Performance Improvement Strategies. These often include refinement of internal controls and improvement of business processes.
