Mitigating Off-Strategy Risk: Mining Industry Risk Challenges and Solutions
The global mining industry is operating within a tough commercial context, with softer commodity prices compressing cashflow, and increasing balance sheet stress – while margins remain under pressure from a sustained period of cost inflation. Meanwhile, investors demand operational rigour and capital discipline to ensure appropriate returns from capital intensive assets and projects.
As the “on strategy” risks embraced by mining companies become tougher to manage, vulnerability to off-strategy risk events increases. We believe the current climate only heightens the importance of sound risk strategies – both to minimise the cost of risk finance and to maximise the resilience of your business.
In Mitigating Off-Strategy Risk: Mining Industry Risk Challenges and Solutions, Marsh explores key areas of risk and highlights risk management and risk transfer solutions in the broad world of mining company off-strategy risk.
