The Risk Manager of the Year Award was established in 1997 by the
Association to recognize the outstanding contributions and positive impact
made by individuals or organizations to the financial risk management
profession. The award recognizes the outstanding contributions of an
individual or group who have materially advanced and influenced the financial
risk profession.

Dr. Banziger is a member of the Management Board and the Group Executive
Committee of Deutsche Bank since 2006. As Chief Risk Officer, he is
responsible for Risk Management, Legal, Compliance, Corporate Governance,
Corporate Security as well as Treasury. Previously, he was with Credit
Suisse, where he worked in leading management positions in Zurich and London.
Dr. Banziger is a member of the Supervisory Board of EUREX Clearing AG and
EUREX Frankfurt AG as well as a member of the Board of Directors of EUREX
Zurich AG.

Richard Apostolik, Global Association of Risk Professionals President and
CEO, said, "For the past 12 years, award recipients have been nominated and
recognized by their peers for their expertise and contributions in risk
management. Award recipients are preeminent risk management professionals or
organizations who have achieved recognition for their work experience in the
field, either as a practitioner, academic or regulator and we are very
pleased to include Dr .Banziger in this esteemed group."

The award has not been limited to individuals, and, in 2007, was
presented to the European Central Bank (ECB) which successfully transitioned
the European Union to a single currency, while controlling the monetary and
economic effects related to the expansion of the EU as it assimilated new
countries into the single currency. The ECB was clearly in the lead in
foreseeing and increasing risks to the financial system derived from the
sub-prime market.

Last year, the award was presented to both the China Banking Regulatory
Commission (CBRC) and its Chairman Liu Mingkang. Mr. Liu took office as
Chairman of the China Banking Regulatory Commission in March 2003. He
currently also serves as Chairman of the International Advisory Council of
the CBRC, a member of the Monetary Policy Committee of the People's Bank of
China, a member of the 17th Central Committee of the Communist Party of
China, and a member of China National Energy Commission.

The 2009 Risk Manager of the Year recipient was Dr. Rene M. Stulz, Reese
Chair in Banking and Monetary Economics and Professor of Finance at the
Fisher College of Business at Ohio State University. Dr. Stulz has consulted
for major corporations, law firms, the New York Stock Exchange, the IMF, and
the World Bank and has been named one of the 100 most influential people in
finance by Treasury and Risk Management.
