The SGUS Risk on Market Activities and Liquidity Risk Management Department (“RISQ/AME/RMA”) is organized under the authority of the US Chief Risk Officer (“CRO”). It constitutes the primary independent risk management function (second line of defense “2nd LOD”) for market and structural activities and ensures the continuous and independent oversight of risks generated on a large range of the SGUS businesses under both normal and stressed conditions.

Under the US Chief Risk Officer (“US CRO”), the RISQ/AME/RMA Department establishes and maintains a framework that is both appropriate for the size, complexity, and risk profile of SGUS and aligned with the Market Activities and Structural Risk tolerance defined within SG RAS. The purpose of the framework is to capture SGUS’s material risks and confirm that the bank operates within the approved risk tolerance.

The functions performed by RISQ/AME/RMA Department are critical components of the bank’s Enterprise Risk Management function. The RISQ/AME/RMA Department is actively involved in market activities business transactions by influencing and challenging risk-taking decisions. The RISQ/AME/RMA Department can escalate items of concern or interest to Senior Management through the ERC process. The US CRO can escalate issues to senior management (through the RiskCo) and the SG Board USRC when activities do not align with the firm’s overall market risk
