Risk management

Safeguarding trust and stability

Risk management is one of the key factors in our economic stability. We safeguard our future through effective management of capital, liquidity and risk.

We identify, value and monitor the relevant risks and manage our capital in such a way that our risk capacity is always guaranteed. We do this in the framework of our risk policy, which is determined by the Board of Directors of VP Bank Group. It contains the risk strategies and regulates the principles, structures, methods and instruments of risk management. By monitoring the targets and limits set out in it, we ensure that risks are always taken within the scope of our risk appetite.
