Risk Management


In order to avoid risks or to at least be able to counteract them, it is vital that they are recognised, classified and evaluated. Tiered hierarchies, complex processes and IT systems, and international integration make risk management necessary to help secure the future of a company.

Depending on the legal form, management is also legally obliged to operate a fully functional risk management and information system.

Credit institutions and insurance companies also assess their customers on the basis of non-payment and liability risks. This is reflected in the interest rates offered for loans and insurance premiums. In many cases, customers do not discover how these are calculated. However, there are in fact often objective reasons that can be overcome. In order to be able to manage potential risks, you have to be aware of them so that you can then manage the company over the long term with low interest rates and insurance premiums.

Competent consulting team

Our consultants have worked in companies as heads of accounting departments and/or in auditing firms and have developed a wealth of experience on the basis of this.

Practical experience combined with operational advice leads to holistic support that goes above and beyond familiar, theoretical high-level consulting approaches.
You will benefit from our consultants' years of experience in various large projects at other companies in the same industry.

IT plays a very important role, particularly in the financial sector. It is here that our advisers benefit from very close contact with the COSMO CONSULT group's ERP consultants. Whereas any other external consultant would take time to come to grips with specialised knowledge, our associates will easily and promptly draw on their previous experience.
