RMA Market Risk Management


As a leader in the industry, RMA serves market risk practitioners at both the larger-institution and smaller-institution levels.

For larger institutions—where market risk management and its related technologies are well-known and mature-RMA provides peer-sharing and professional development opportunities pertaining to risk in capital markets, including market risk, counterparty credit risk, and sovereign/country risk.

Through events, such as round tables, in North America and Europe, we also offer education in liquidity risk (both funding and traded), price risk, equity risk, interest rate risk, and foreign exchange. RMA addresses the needs of experienced professionals with advanced courses including Advanced Risk Management Practices in Asset Management, Counterparty Credit Risk and Control: Best Practices, and Internal Ratings and Model Validation.

To remain at the forefront of the industry, RMA periodically conducts surveys, benchmarking studies, and best practice papers so that you can benefit from the latest insights.

For smaller institutions—where the market risk function is part of the asset/liability management process-RMA provides the skills necessary to further your understanding of the impact of changing market conditions on the soundness of the balance sheet and profitability of the income statement.

RMA's programs explore issues in liquidity management, interest rate risk management, loan and deposit management, and provide practical, relevant examples based on the present interest rate environment and current market conditions.

You can participate in RMA's beneficial training through both open-enrollment and Web-based courses. Additionally, The RMA Journal® also regularly carries articles on market-risk-related topics.
