Risk assessments continuously mature as they are updated, generally breaking risk profiles into smaller and more detailed segments. This granularity tends to increase the expectation of stakeholders and regulators to identify and manage client and product risks proactively.

However, some financial institutions may be overvaluing the inherent risk compared to the possible residual risk and the associated reward of these clients and products.
