RMA Annual Conference Focused on Financial Industry’s Future

Philadelphia, PA (November 9, 2017) –

Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan among Keynote Speakers

More than ever, the Risk Management Association (RMA) is dedicated to helping members navigate the changing, challenging landscape of the financial services industry. The upcoming RMA Annual Risk Management Conference, November 12-14 in Boston, exemplifies the Association’s unwavering focus on the future.

Sessions featuring the latest information on blockchain, data quality, and credit operations that employ the cloud reflect a fast-paced world where rapid advances in technology and compliance expectations mean banks must always prepare for tomorrow. The conference will also feature sessions on specialized lending, regulatory issues, geopolitical risks, and other critical issues facing banks today and tomorrow.

One of those issues is the need to ensure banks have the talent necessary to thrive in the decades to come. To that end, RMA awards scholarships and provides several other opportunities to college students interested in pursuing financial services careers. This year, RMA is welcoming students from schools including Boston College, Providence College, and Bryant University to the conference.

The conference’s keynote speakers will be Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan, REIS Chief Economist Victor Calanog, and Brookline Bank President and CEO Darryl J. Fess.

Optional pre-and post-conference events include a Community Bank Vendor Management Forum, Credit Risk Policy Round Table, Enterprise Risk Management Round Table, and a workshop on understanding the new Current Expected Credit Loss standard for the Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses.
