With the growing emphasis on risk management and capital, it is important to know the correlation of your risks within your retail portfolio and the diversification benefit provided to the rest of your institution.
Enterprise risk management involves knowing the correlation of risks within a business unit and how much diversification benefit can be justified by looking across the bank. Managing these correlations is an important source of additional return from better risk management, lower capital requirements, and marginal pricing flexibility.
