The assignment of management of risk exposure to the appropriate level in the group’s hierarchy is good governance for the company and decision maker risk management. Frequently in matters of corporate and business crime, the behaviour that forms the object of a conviction results from insufficient vigilance or a lack of care in the implementation of risk-prevention tools. Adopting appropriate delegations of power should allow the persons designated as the responsible parties (i.e., the beneficiaries of said delegations) to perform their oversight and risk management duties more effectively than could senior managers, who are, of necessity, more removed on a day-to-day basis from the details of every transaction. Given organization changes take place every day in global groups, keeping delegation of powers up to date is not only a real challenge but crucial given the stakes.
