Case Study

Improved risk monitoring and management lead to lower risk exposure, higher resilience

Client Profile

Dairy Co.* is a mid-sized producer of dairy products with operations in Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. Products include a range of processed dairy products aimed at mass market consumers.

The Challenge

Dairy Co. approached Mersol & Luo because it was concerned about how recent and upcoming regulatory changes would affect its business. They were unsure of how to evaluate the risk to their company and how to prepare their company for these changes.

Our Approach

Mersol & Luo applied a data-based approach to assessing risk, quantifying the value of the company’s risk exposure. We then advised the company on how to adapt its strategy to minimize and manage these risks. Following execution of our recommendations, we monitored on-the-ground results, providing additional advice on how to optimize their risk management strategy and execution.

The Results

Working with Mersol & Luo, Dairy Co. was able to reduce its risk exposure by over 70% and nearly double its risk-weighted resiliency. Our team also developed a risk-monitoring-and-management strategy so the company would be better equipped to respond to future unexpected emergent risks. This enabled the company to position itself to cope with the impact of regulatory changes on their business and long-term operations in the Mainland China market.
