Risk Management

At Derwent London we aim to deliver on our strategic objectives for the benefit of our stakeholders while operating within the risk tolerance levels set by our Board. 

Risk management

Risk is inherent in running any business and our risk management procedures are routinely reviewed and strengthened to ensure that all foreseeable and emerging risks are identified, understood and managed.   

The role of our Board, with support from the Risk Committee, is to ensure that our risk management and internal controls are robust so that we remain able to swiftly identify and react to new threats and uncertainties. Balanced with the maintenance of a flexible business model and strong financial structure, this better enables us to weather uncertainties and take advantage of opportunities.   

Our overall low risk tolerance, alongside a transparent and collaborative work style, ensures that any potential risk is identified quickly.

Anti-bribery and corruption

We are committed to the highest standards of ethical conduct and integrity in our business practices and adopt a zero tolerance approach to bribery and corruption. An overview of our policies and procedures in this area was published in our 2017 Annual Report and Accounts on 113.
