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.

RMA’s Risk Management Academy – London, 18/19 November

In today's challenging banking environment, risk is part of everyone's job, so, in order to help banks to be better prepared to understand and manage all elements of risk, we are launching our new Risk Management Academy training course in London in November 2019.

The Risk Management Academy provides a comprehensive overview of risk management at financial institutions that's ideal for early to mid-career stage credit risk and lending professionals, as well as for those who interact with risk management and for those working in other areas of financial institutions who seek a broad understanding of risk management.

Effective risk management in the financial services industry requires that all staff members, independent of their functions, are risk managers within the three lines of defence risk governance/organisation model. Course participants will learn the major risk types and understand the key elements of modern risk management in financial institutions, including stakeholder requirements, framework and principles, and how to manage key constraints such as capital and liquidity.

  • Examine and discuss the risks facing banks.
  • Learn how risks are identified, measured, and managed.
  • Recognise how banks manage their balance sheet structure.
  • Examine key stakeholder requirements and their impact on the organisation.
  • Understand key risk and performance indicators.

A sound culture of risk management begins with each individual at the bank. If you have employees who you consider would benefit from attending this essential course please register them today. Full details about the course are to be found in the brochure.

The course is very competitively priced at just GBP 995/- (or only GBP 895/- for individuals working for RMA member institutions), and will be delivered by the excellent Peter Buerger, a former CRO at a large global bank.

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 also bring in high-caliber outside speakers to address round table participants on specific topics.   

In the Autumn of 2019 we will be running the following roundtables in Europe:

  • European Credit & Risk Management Round Table – London – 5 November 2019
  • European Market & Counterparty Risk Management Round Table – London – 6 November 2019
  • European Country/Sovereign Risk Management Round Table – London – 7 November 2019  

    Should you require any information about these round tables, please contact the RMA's European representative, Steve Shaw, who will be pleased to provide this.

    We also partner from time to time with organizations such as Deloitte, KPMG and Teneo Intelligence to run one-off round tables on topics which are of current interest to risk management executives.

    Industry Surveys

    The RMA is very active in the arena of financial industry surveys on topics of broad importance and significance to industry participants. These surveys are among the most in-depth available, and we are proud that we are consistently able to have the world's leading banks take part.
