Approach to Risk Management and Risk Management System

Approach to Risk Management

ORIX allocates resources in line with Group-wide risk preferences based on management strategies and the strategies of individual business units. We also allocate more resources to business units with growth potential while controlling our balance sheet. We optimize the risk-adjusted allocation of resources by precisely profiling the characteristics of various risks relevant to Group business initiatives worldwide and managing them intelligently according to type and degree of impact.

Risk Management System

The Board of Directors makes decisions about the risk management system as part of the overarching internal control system. ORIX has the requisite risk management systems and techniques in place to address a wide array of risks both comprehensively and individually. These include executive bodies and departments in charge of risk management, comprehensive rules and regulations, investment standards, and limits on value at risk for deals along with relevant reporting and monitoring systems. The Board of Directors receives an annual report on the operational status of the internal control system and its component risk management system.
