Consulting Practice Area

Non-Financial Risk
“Clients need to be able to see where the emerging risks are coming from, rather than reacting after the event. New technologies can facilitate that.”


New Link Consulting recognises that all control functions are buffeted by the winds of change, whether through regulation, external events or an organisation’s appetite for risk. However, we believe that such functions must embrace the opportunities and challenges that technology offers to keep ahead of the change curve.

The control functions need to be able to see where the emerging risks are coming from, rather than reacting after the event. New technologies can facilitate that. Artificial Intelligence (‘AI’) and the utilisation of Predictive Analytics is now commonplace and Robotics are increasingly being harnessed to perform roles in processing and operating controls that have previously been completed by individuals.
