In October 2017 The Treasury Committee launched a new inquiry into Women in Finance focusing on HM Treasury's Women in Finance Charter and the progress it has made. The Committee will seek to identify the barriers to women entering and progressing in the financial services industry and will examine the value to financial firms of having greater gender imbalance. It will also scrutinize the impact of Government and financial regulators as role models for good gender diversity practices.

This high-profile forum builds on the success of the previous editions of the Women in Business and the Women in Finance summits, which both attracted 250+ senior delegates from across business, government and the regulatory community, both here and overseas.

The conference will examine the role of the Government and financial regulators in addressing the imbalance of seniority between genders and determine what can be done to identify the barriers to women entering and progressing in the financial services sector.

It will also review the progress made since the launch of the HM Treasury's Charter and assess the impact the Charter has had on signatory companies, the benefits they are realising and the challenges the firms face in meeting their Charter commitments.

Other topics include:

  • What is the UK Government's strategy for ensuring that the potential of women in the boardroom and in the senior management of the financial services industry is being realised?
  • Enhancing female leadership, empowering productivity and harnessing the talents of women in financial services
  • Promoting "The Power of Equality" and moving towards closing "three Gs" - the participation gap, the remuneration gap and advancement gap
  • Gender Pay Regulations - what are the reports showing and what impact will they have on the financial services sector?
  • Aligning your passion with skill - what are the key components to a successful career in the financial services industry? Insights from successful women in the financial services world
  • What next? Moving forward and finding the ways to drive permanent and sustainable change across the financial services industry. Best practices to effectively engage men in implementation of your gender diversity programmes

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 Offers Workshops Held in Conjunction with the British Bankers' Association (BBA)

The BBA is based on Old Broad Street, in the heart of the City of London. 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 RMA is one of the BBA's leading providers of risk management training. These workshops will all be conducted by highly experienced RMA trainers. For full details on what these workshops cover and how to enrol, please visit the BBA website.

The 2018 RMA/Cass Advanced Risk Management Programme

The 2018 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 21-24 May 2018.

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

  • Senior Compliance and Audit executives

  • Independent non-executive directors of financial sector firms.

Candidates attending this programme must demonstrate significant leadership experience, subject matter expertise and general success with a broad set of management responsibilities. For full details please visit the RMA/Cass Advanced Risk Management Programme website.

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.  

    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.

    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.
