The 2015 RMA/Cass Advanced Risk Management Programme

The 2015 RMA/Cass Advanced Risk Management Programme, led by the faculty at Cass, one of the UK's top business schools, is a one week programme for senior risk practitioners which exposes participants to a rigorous, yet inspiring blend of theory, practice, and cutting edge-research, instilling knowledge and skills applicable to the real world of global business. It takes place in London on 23-27 February 2015.

The programme's focus is as follows:

  • Risk management as a strategic competitive strength 

  • An integrated approach to risk management 

  • Fostering a culture and climate that openly communicates risk 

  • A framework for rapidly responding to known risks and unraveling the complexities of the unknown 

  • A focus on risk informed by global perspectives 

  • Gaining a perspective on risk management and its implications for corporate governance

This programme is designed for participants who work in the financial sector in the UK, the EMEA Region or Asia and are senior risk practitioners or business-line executives on track for broader assignments within their organisation.

It is also considered suitable for independent non-executive directors of financial sector firms.

For full details please visit the RMA/Cass Advanced Risk Management Programme website.

RMA Roundtables in Europe
Each year, the RMA runs several invitation-only roundtables in Europe for senior risk management executives in the banking sector. These events are moderated by the RMA, have carefully constructed agendas, are subject to Chatham House Rules and involve no more than 20 invited participants. We bring in high calibre outside speakers to address roundtable participants on specific topics.

Our roundtables for the remainder of 2015 are as follows:

  • European Credit and Risk Management Roundtable - 17/18 November 2015. This will be held at the Hotel InterContinental Le Grand, Paris.

  • European Market and Counterparty Risk Officers Roundtable - 17 November 2015. This will be held at the offices of Standard Chartered Bank in London.

  • Sovereign Risk Roundtable - 19 November 2015. This will be held at BNP Paribas Fortis in Brussels.

We will also be holding an Operational Risk Roundtable in London in September 2015, in conjunction with KPMG.

Should you require any information about these roundtables, please contact the RMA's European representative, Steve Shaw, who will be pleased to provide this.

Industry Surveys

The RMA is very active in the arena of financial industry surveys on topics of broad importance and significance to industry participants. These surveys are among the most in-depth available, and we are proud that we are consistently able to have the world's leading banks take part.

In conjunction with KPMG, in 1Q 2015 we are running an "Operational Risk Management Excellence - Global Heightened Practices Survey". The majority of the Top 50 banks in Europe will be invited to take part in this survey, and an RMA/KPMG Op. Risk Roundtable for these banks is scheduled to take place in London in May 2015 at which survey responses will be presented and discussed.
