InvestmentsRisk management


Prudent investment selection and structuring, monitoring, and risk reporting are all part of IBA’s investment risk management approach. The approach was developed in conjunction with external industry specialists and takes into account the latest developments in risk management and governance.

The performance of each individual investment is monitored using indicators appropriate to the specific investment, which may include (among other measures) return on equity, internal rate of return, debt to total capital ratio (gearing) and, where relevant, appropriate metrics regarding employment, training or procurement.

Investment performance is monitored through a range of processes applied annually (annual reviews, valuations, budgeting and planning) and quarterly (whole-of-portfolio reviews), as well as monthly and weekly management reporting and analysis.
