Company Background and Risk Goals: 

Zions Bancorporation is a financial services company that operates six bank charters across the 

western United States. With the diverse, broad services that it offers, comes a complicated risk profile. 

One of the main questions of management was what type of technology system would fit the company’s 

needs and facilitate meeting Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 requirements. Zions came up with three goals 

for its risk framework:

  • Allow Zions to effectively manage risk and cut losses
  • Increase shareholder value and customer service
  • Meet regulatory requirements

The overarching goal was also to fit this all into one system with a common framework in order to suit 

management’s plans.

System Requirements

Zions enlisted the input of a multitude of internal groups to help develop the requirements 

the new risk system would need in order to be successful. Since Zions deals with banks, 

it also worked closely with the Federal Reserve Bank and the U.S. Office of the Comptroller. 

One of the key groups was the Internal Audit department, who provided feedback on many 

areas such as functionality, methodology, and user guidelines. After gathering all necessary 

feedback, the following requirements were established:

  • Automated ERM system
  • Use of a variety of risk tools
  • User-friendly screen designs
  • Broad reporting applications for all departments
  • Automatic alerts
  • Web-based, scalable system
  • Data feeds from multiple systems

This list provided a building block for Zions’ risk management system. The company enlisted 

the help of an outside software vendor for development, Providius Software Solutions, Inc.

Risk Avenues

Zions management studied the COSO Internal Control-Integrated Framework when deciding 

on how to approach risk management, and it based its own framework on that model. 

There are four steps to the Zions risk management process:

1. Determine objectives and risks


2. Identify controls and assess their strength


3. Develop actions necessary to eliminate gaps in control


4. Establish accountability and sustainability


The business-line users determine the objectives and identify the risks associated with those 

objectives. The risk management system calculates the inherent risk score for analysis. 

This step helps with the evaluation of the company’s risk levels. The same business-line users 

then populate the system with controls and ratings. These controls are either preventive 

or detective. The risk management system then calculates control and residual risks scores 

to identify risk exposures.

Management can then use these analyses to demonstrate that the internal controls are effective 

and should meet the Section 404 requirements. Internal audit still needs to review the controls 

and provide feedback internally. If any control exposures exist, managers put developed actions 

into place to close those holes. In order to create greater management involvement, Zions uses 

its risk system for online certifications and for management approvals on controls and actions. 

The Zions systems can provide custom reports and graphics to allow the users to quickly identify 

potential issues.

Indications to this Homework

What are the main meanings of Portfolio theory ?

The theory that holds that assets should be chosen on the 
basis of how they interact with one another rather than how 
they perform in isolation. According to this theory, an optimal 
combination would secure for the investor the highest possible 
return for a given level of risk or the least possible risk for a given 
level of return. Although individual investors can use some of the 
ideas of portfolio theory in putting together a group of investments, 
the theory and the literature relating to it are so complex and 
mathematically sophisticated that the theory is applied primarily 
by market professionals. 

Portfolio theory also called Modern Portfolio Theory.
