The risk left over after safeguards (mitigation strategies) have been implemented.
The residual risk is the risk or danger of an action or an event, a method or a process that, although being abreast with science, still conceives these dangers, even if all theoretically possible safety measures would be applied. The formula to calculate residual risk is x where inherent risk is. In the economic context, residual means “the quantity left over at the end of a process; a remainder”. In the property rights model it is the shareholder that holds the residual risk and therefore the residual profit.
