Live Webinar

Automating A Risk Assessment Framework in Finance Systems

Date: Wednesday, October 17, 2018
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Given that Franklin Templeton is a global, decentralized accounting operations organization where different teams and accountants are responsible for certain legal entities, the absence of an objective framework to determine the accounts risk-rating became more apparent. And, it resulted in inconsistent determination of risk factors, which are essential to mitigating and minimizing risk.

Join this webinar to learn how to address and mitigate risk factors such as materiality of account balance, transaction volume, account balance subjectivity degree, and managing extensive manual transaction recording.
