As the chief financial officer (CFO) of a leading financial services firm, John Hancock Investments, I can tell you that mitigating risk is clearly an area of focus. Our business is becoming increasingly complex, so it’s crucial to keep the expertise of our staff up to date. As a mutual funds company, we’re impacted by many regulatory bodies that are active in imposing new rules and guidance to follow. On top of that, John Hancock Investments has a very diverse product portfolio that’s always evolving so we can ensure we’re meeting the needs of our clients.
Basically—there’s a lot at stake.
