PRMIA has named Olga Główka with UBS Group in Poland as the 2015 PRM™ Candidate of the Year recipient. Alexandre Clarke, an Advisor, Portfolio Management, at Otéra Capital was named the 2015 PRM™ Cross-Over Candidate of the Year recipient.
This award program annually recognizes top Professional Risk Manager (PRM™) candidates from around the world. The PRM designation program, comprised of four exams, is the global standard for the world's top financial risk professionals, having received public endorsements from both business and universities. A PRM assures that the holder has the required broad knowledge and understanding, qualitative and quantitative, that risk managers must bring to the job.
Ms. Główka and Mr. Clarke’s PRM exam scores were the highest of all PRMIA members who earned their PRM designation between January 1 – December 31, 2015, qualifying them for the distinction of 2015 Candidates of the Year.

This qualifies him as the PRM Cross-Over Candidate of the Year.
