Institute of Risk Management (IRM) Appoints Former Chair José Morago, CFIRM, as Global Ambassador for Spain and Latin America


The IRM is delighted to announce its first Global Ambassador for Spain and Latin America.

José Morago, CFIRM, is Managing Director of Axon Risk Advisory, a boutique consultancy providing specialist risk management & regulatory advice to senior executives and Board members in the financial sector. He is a seasoned risk management professional with 25+ years C Suite and executive leadership experience in insurance and banking at an international level.  He has deep knowledge of risk and regulatory challenges across UK & European financial services sectors.


Prior to Axon Risk Advisory, José spent 3 years at the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) as Deputy Chief Risk Officer and recently worked for Metro Bank as Risk Chief Operating Officer. He also held senior roles as Group Risk Director at Aviva, Chief Risk Officer for Ageas UK as well as McKinsey and Moody’s.


José is also former Chairman of the IRM and founder of the Internal Model Industry Forum (IMIF). In 2016, José was named as one of the most influential risk and capital professionals in Europe by InsuranceERM magazine.


José said:


“It is a pleasure and an honour to be part of the Global Ambassador’s network for the IRM. I look forward to connecting with the IRM members, risk management professionals and students in Spain and Latin-America. 


I see a great opportunity with raising the IRM’s profile in the Hispanic world and helping people find out about the value, benefits and services that the IRM provides.  Ultimately, I would like to build a stronger sense of risk community across Spain and Latin-America and a platform for sharing the latest risk management practices.”


Iain Wright, CFIRM, IRM Chair says:


“We’re delighted with this exciting development. Globally businesses will need qualified risk professionals to aid the resilience and economic recovery in these challenging times.


All personnel across an organisation need to have the ability to understand risk and interpret emerging trends from a risk perspective.  José and his fellow Global Ambassadors will play a vital part in raising the profile of the profession and the importance of businesses having qualified risk professionals”.
