Of the influential importance that risk assessment holds, measuring and depicting risks even before they occur can be of significant importance, especially in the financial industry. Key Risk Indicators (KRIs) are such measures and metrics that relate to specific risks and show a change in the likelihood or result of that particular risk occurring.
