2024 Annual Risk Management Conference

Join Us Virtually December 9-12, 2024

 

Risks, Regulations, Opportunities, and Disruptors – Preparing for the Uncertainties of 2025

As 2024 ends, join risk and other financial professionals from across the banking industry to review how crises, Covid, and higher interest rates have shaped the market’s risk agenda and reinforced the importance of managing fundamentals like credit and liquidity risk as we move into an unpredictable year ahead. 

At RMA’s Annual Risk Management Virtual Conference, expert speakers explore why fortifying traditional risk disciplines like credit and liquidity management is essential to navigating through disruptions and the unexpected challenges of an increasingly complex operating and regulatory environment. From skittish depositors to aggressive fraudsters to a talent brain drain, banks face a growing list of threats to the stability and viability of their institutions. Technology offers hope but carries with it its own substantial risks. 

*Please note, many sessions will be CPE eligible, regulated per NASBA guidelines.  

 

Conference topics include: 

  • Commercial credit risk sector analysis, including a deep dive on the CRE Office segment  
  • Consumer lending (behavior, impact of high inflation and interest rates, regulations and compliance, competitive landscape)  
  • An outlook on the economy and opportunities for responsible growth 
  • Managing liquidity risks and costs of funding 
  • Fraud and Cybersecurity  
  • Concentration and correlation risk 
  • Board Risk Oversight 
  • ESG, including talent, climate and DEI issues 
  • General regulatory guidance and impact 
  • Technology/change management 

 

The conference features sessions tailored to the needs of large, regional, mid-tier, and community banks, and a special track focused on consumer credit and lending. Developed by a steering committee of industry experts and RMA Council members, RMA’s Annual Risk Management Conference is designed to support financial professionals as they plan for and manage through the challenges their institutions face from all risk stripes.
