Reserves and Risk Management
Recorded On: 05/26/2020
If reserves are a hedge against risk, how do they complement the other risk management tools that local governments have at their disposal? In this session speakers will present case studies on how they have calibrated their reserves to the risks that they face. Speakers will also describe the process used to get there and how the analysis into the various risk factors, and the likely occurrence and impact of each, helped them think about reserves differently and prepare more effective risk management programs for their government and community.
