Some of Australia’s top female Chief Risk Officers shared their experience and insights with Morgan McKinley in a recent interview series.

The CROs that contributed to the whitepaper came from a diverse range of backgrounds, including legal, finance/audit, financial planning, front-line banking and risk consulting.
