MetLife’s culture of ethics, integrity and risk management is woven into the fabric of the organization. Employees at all levels, and in all departments, are responsible for managing risk. We expect all employees to meet the highest standards of business conduct and to fully comply with applicable laws, regulations and company policies.
Our risk management framework is designed to address all risks that are material to the business. Both financial and nonfinancial risks, including environmental, social and governance issues, are identified and managed through processes and tools.
Our risk management framework provides strong governance at the Board and senior management levels to ensure comprehensive coverage and sharing of risk reporting. The framework articulates the types and aggregate level of risk that the company wishes to assume and establishes boundaries for managerial risk-taking as the organization pursues its strategic objectives and business plan.
