Risk & Compliance

Enabling client impact and protecting the firm
Our Risk and Compliance teams use clear analysis, sound judgment, and effective communication to assess and manage potential risk across the globe. We counsel our colleagues, promote a culture that brings our values into every decision, and ensure the firm has the capabilities it needs to manage risk and ensure compliance with the obligations to which it is subject.

Featured Roles

Our work on Risk and Compliance is guided by a dual purpose: to enable client impact and innovation, and manage risks to our clients, firm, and people.

We do this through four areas. Enterprise Risk Management assures risk transparency and priorities, policies, and governance. Risk Culture empowers our 30,000+ colleagues with knowledge and behaviors to manage risk. Client Service Risk advises on how to manage risk in our client work. Compliance ensures we meet the standards we and others expect of us.

Meet our people

“Our culture is real and alive and palpable – it’s in the conversations you have where values are woven into discussion, the time colleagues are willing to spend to co-create a solution, and the dialogue on the toughest issues in which everyone has a voice. Our culture inspires and drives our work rather than the other way around.”

Marissa, Leader, Crisis Management, Washington DC

“During my interview process, I kept hearing the words: ‘Make your own McKinsey.’ To be honest, part of me was skeptical. Fortunately, I was wrong. Now I can see how it’s not just a phrase, but a reality – part of the DNA of this organization and its people.”
