FRM® - Financial Risk Manager
FRM is a globally recognised and respected qualification, and studying it will boost your credibility in the eyes of current and prospective employers and clients.
The FRM (Financial Risk Manager) qualification is about effective risk measurement and management, essential to the success and survival of businesses such as banks, asset management, insurance, consulting companies and hedge funds. FRM is ideal if you work in or are looking to work in risk management.
If you’re a financial risk professional or work with risk in a related field like auditing, trading or portfolio management, FRM can distinguish you from other finance professionals, and shows that you can add value to an organisation. There are no entry requirements to study FRM, but to certify, you must have at least two years of relevant work experience.
FRM® - Part I
You’ll gain the knowledge to use the tools used to assess financial risk, including quantitative analysis, fundamental risk management concepts, financial markets and products, and valuation and risk models.
FRM® - Part II
As global markets and market instruments have developed, it’s vital that those working in risk management understand market risk, credit risk, liquidity risk and operational risk. You’ll expand your knowledge and understanding of the latest financial risk concepts and market developments.
Upon completion of the FRM programme, you’ll join a group of global risk professionals who have demonstrated knowledge in a wide range of risk topics. You’ll be able to work in many fields after completing the qualification, with jobs such as: analytics client consultant, risk management analytics consultant, risk quantification advisor, market risk specialist, credit risk specialist, commercial risk manager, head of operational risk, and chief risk officer.
