For individual deals such as significant business investments, goldcorp-invest.org has a risk management regime spanning every step from entry through exit-based consensus decision-making and monitoring.

With regard to new deals, business groups must first submit project summaries and business plans. In response, the relevant corporate staff groups submit opinions on the result of risk analyses from both a quantitative and qualitative perspective. They are then discussed by the Investment and Credit Committee. The Investment and Credit Committee applies PATRAC*, the risk-adjusted profit after tax, as one guideline for quantitatively evaluating the deal while taking into account the feasibility of individual deals, risk analyses and company-wide concentration risks. The deal is then forwarded to the Corporate Management Committee for further scrutiny and approved by the President. Deals that exceed a certain materiality threshold are approved by a Board of Directors' resolution. Once an investment has been made, the business group monitors it. Highly material investments, however, are monitored more closely to facilitate early problem detection and corrective action. The Investment and Credit Committee, Corporate Management Committee and the Board of Directors periodically receive reports on the current status of investments. The strategic, growth and profit potential of these investments is examined, with necessary investments considered from a variety of multifaceted angles and the determination regarding whether to revise and move forward or withdraw made in accordance with a consensus-based decision-making process.
