In our Group, risk management is everybody's job. For clients who entrust Amundi with their assets and place their confidence in us, an efficient and effective risk management system is crucial. 

Securing the entire value creation chain

Amundi has set up an independent risk function, which is integrated across the company worldwide. It combines several teams with distinct and complementary missions, sharing a single vocation: risk control.

The first level of risk control naturally lies with the professionalism of our management teams. The system relies on a rigorous pre- and post-trade control system, encompassing all of our capabilities.

This organisation, rolled out in all Group businesses, is our guarantee to investors that we will fulfil our commitments, whether they be contractual, regulatory or statutory.

Independent and complementary missions

150 employees in the Risk team
At the heart of the risk management system, the Risk teams check that limits are duly respected on a daily basis. These teams, who operate independently of the front office, monitor management processes and decisions in order to secure the solutions developed for our clients. 
60 employees in the Compliance team
These teams play an essential preventive role and ensure compliance with professional regulations, codes of conduct and professional standards, of which they are the guarantors. They ensure the preservation of clients' interests, market integrity and the independence of our activities. 
22 employees in the internal audit team
The Internal Audit teams provide General Management with an independent and professional opinion on the implementation and efficiency of processes and procedures at every level of the organisation.

A proactive and well-structured risk approach

The Risk function is organised to optimise proximity. The Risk Managers, specialised by investment strategy, work alongside the management teams with whom they share a solid risk awareness. The management teams and the Risk teams use control tools based on shared methodologies.

The risk control teams work towards implementing and ensuring rigorous supervision of investment processes, in three steps:
