About the Risk Team
The Chief Risk Office (CRO) within DWS is an independent function responsible for protecting the business as well as being a trusted adviser and partner for supporting sustainable business growth. CRO is responsible for ensuring that DWS meets its regulatory and contractual commitments as well as the expectations of clients, shareholders and regulators that the organisation “does what is right rather than just what is allowed”. CRO seeks to protect DWS against losses and reputational damage, through effective oversight and advice, underpinned by an exemplary risk culture.
CRO has been designed to balance the need for alignment with the DWS business whilst maintaining independence and strong relationships with DB Group key control functions.
The CRO governance structure supports a holistic risk and control view. This ability for the control groups to work together seamlessly allows for effective and timely advice to our stakeholders and partners and effective decision making thereby managing the risks, and supporting the sustainable growth, of a world leading asset manager.
