Persimmon has a long established and effective framework for identifying, monitoring and managing the risks faced by the Group. Management implement the Board’s policies on risk control through the design and operation of appropriate internal control systems.

We have identified the principal risk areas that drive the basis of our approach to risk management:

  • UK's exit from the EU

  • National and regional economic conditions

  • Mortgage availability

  • Health and safety

  • Regulatory compliance

  • Materials

  • Labour

  • Our strategy

These risks are reviewed and updated on a regular basis.
