Yeah, it looks like the real problem here is that these smaller banks basically were making very risky investments and didn't always have the people in place who might actually help the situation.

I still haven’t found the gap you’re referring to regarding this position. This isn’t the risk assessment department, though I’m sure they work together. The problem your highlighting doesn’t directly correlate with the job position being discussed from everything I’ve seen so far.

I definitely wouldn't call treasury bonds a risky investment

I guess that depends on how much money you have invested.

Treasury bonds are quite literally considered to be one of, if not the, absolute safest investments in existence. It's literally guaranteed returns... If somebody put every penny that they had in treasury bonds 99% of financial advisors would tell them they are being too risk averse.

That would be considered a risk. Unless you're really old, then you are just leaving money sitting on the table. And I'm not sure this was the only thing that happened with this bank.

That isn't what risk means. "You aren't getting the biggest returns possible on this money" isn't financial risk.
