RMA Europe

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.

As part of its well-established portfolio of high-level diversity events, many of which have enjoyed government support, City & Financial Global is delighted to be organising the 4th edition of the Annual Women in Finance Summit organised in partnership with Women in Banking & Finance and held in central London on the 12th of February 2020.

This high-profile forum builds on the success of the previous related events that City & Financial Global and its partners have held. For instance, the inaugural Women in Finance Summit, which took place on the 24 January 2017 and attracted 250+ senior FS industry delegates, government officials and regulators from the UK and beyond. For further information, I kindly refer you to the following video link. Another example is The Vote 100 Women Summit, held in London in last April, at which a member of the British Royal Family, Prince Edward’s wife, the Countess of Wessex, was a keynote speaker and participant.

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 Spring of 2020 we will be running the following roundtables in Europe:

  • Non-Financial Risks Round Table – London – 24 March 2020
  • Funding and Liquidity Risk Management Round Table – London – 19 May 2020
  • Market & Counterparty Risk Management Round Table – London – 20 May 2020
  • Climate Risk Management Round Table – London – 21 May 2020

      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.

      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.
