Management of Risk at Piraeus Bank Group

Piraeus Bank places particular emphasis on the effective monitoring and management of risk, at individual and group level, with a view to maintaining stability and continuity of its operations. In this context, the competent organs of the Bank regularly record and reassess its Business Strategy as regards assuming, monitoring and managing risk and distinguishing transactions and customers by level of risk; they determine appropriate maximum acceptable limits of risk-taking overall by each type of risk, refining each of these limits, they also establish limits for discontinuing loss-making activities and take other corrective actions.

The Bank also proceeds with establishing reliable, effective and comprehensive policies and procedures to assess and maintain on an ongoing basis the amounts, composition and distribution of its equity, which the Bank's management each time deems adequate for covering the nature and level of risk the Bank undertakes or may undertake. These policies and procedures are subject to regular internal review and assessment by the Group Risk Management Division in order to ensure that they remain comprehensive, adequate and proportionate to the nature, extent and complexity of the Bank's current activities.
