The RMA Journal is the only periodical that provides in-depth treatment of subjects devoted exclusively to the risks and opportunities in the business of lending. Published 10 times per year, The RMA Journal is read by risk professionals at every level of experience at institutions ranging from community banks to global, complex institutions. Widely read in North America, the Journal is expanding its readership in the global financial centers of Europe, Australia, and Asia.

The content addresses emerging issues in enterprise risk management, many of which are tied to the current economic environment while others remind readers of the importance of the Five C’s of credit. Liquidity and capital adequacy, fraud, managing the commercial real estate portfolio, and addressing interest rate risk are among the topics frequently featured. About 18,000 RMA members receive the Journal and pass it among coworkers. Its estimated secondary readership is 100,000. Continuously published since 1918, The RMA Journal is one of the top five North American banking magazines in terms of circulation.
