A risk profile is a quantitative analysis of the types of threats an organization, asset, project or individual faces.
The goal of a risk profile is to provide a non-subjective understanding of risk by assigning numerical values to variables representing different types of threats and the danger they pose. In finance, a risk profile can be a useful tool for discussing and evaluating a potential investment's ability to maximize return on investment (ROI) while minimizing risk.
In the enterprise, the ability for a management team to understand and be able to measure gaps between the company's risk profile and its risk appetite is an important aspect of running a successful enterprise risk management program.
