This event is being organised in association with the City of London Corporation and with the support of TheCityUK. A number of the other major trade associations across the City are also supporting.

The thinking behind the summit is that it would be useful to bring together c-suite representatives from all sectors of the financial services industry after the Summer break to hear (a) where the UK Government stands in terms of its preparations for negotiating the UK's exit from the EU, (b) the initial thoughts of the various bodies and working groups that have been set up across the City to formulate the industry's response for individual sectors and (c) the views of a number of leading figures in the FS industry about their in-house planning for BREXIT.

The speakers at the conference will be drawn from leading City figures and members of the various bodies and working groups referred to above that are working on this issue. Mark Boleat, Chairman of the Policy & Resources Committee, and Miles Celic, Chief Executive, will be speaking on behalf of the City of London Corporation and TheCityUK, respectively.

The programme will provide a thorough analysis of the situation as is stands in the early Autumn.

Topics to be covered:

  • The Government’s stance on negotiating Brexit: key policy priorities and timescales
  • Government policies for supporting the UK Financial Services Industry through the transition
  • The business challenge of BREXIT: threats and opportunities
  • Securing the EU financial Services “passport’

The RMA in Europe

In the United States and Canada the RMA is a household name in the banking industry. In the risk management arena, we are the premier organisation for training, round tables, conferences, and peer sharing.

Building upon our considerable success in North America we are expanding our offerings in Europe, focusing on open enrollment courses, programmes for future leaders and invitation-only round tables where senior bankers can share their thoughts with their peers on key aspects of risk management which are of significance to all.

It is the UK's leading association for the banking and financial services sector, representing the interests of more than 240 member organisations with a worldwide presence in 180 countries.

The 2017 RMA/Cass Advanced Risk Management Programme

The 2017 RMA/Cass Advanced Risk Management Programme, led by the faculty at Cass, one of the UK's top business schools, is a four day 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 from 22-25 May 2017.

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 business leaders, functional heads and senior risk managers from all sectors who have a responsibility for overseeing the stability and performance of the business, while ensuring that their organisation's culture is conducive to better risk management.

Although most individuals will come from teams and organisations working in the UK and the EMEA region, business professionals from around the world are welcomed and encouraged to attend. The following individuals (or teams) will be able to apply knowledge from the programme immediately:

  • Senior risk practitioners

  • Senior managers of multinational organisations

  • Business-line executives on track for global or general management assignments

RMA Round Tables in Europe
Each year, the RMA runs several invitation-only round tables 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 round table participants on specific topics.

Our next European round tables will take place in Paris and London in November:
