Risk Management 3.0: Emerging Risks – Managing the Knowns and the Unknowns

Nov. 13: Pre-conference Workshop
Nov. 14 - 15: Canadian Risk Forum
Brochure

The financial ecosystem has been exposed to drastic changes. In the past few years, financial and risk practitioners have witnessed the emergence of a changing regulatory overhaul, disruptive technologies, multifaceted management environments and shocking shifts in the political landscape.

These changes entail investment and risk professionals to adopt a nimble mindset long-term. Within this context, new requirements are emerging both in terms of human skill sets and risk management knowledge.

PRMIA will dedicate the 5th edition of its Canadian Risk Forum to an in depth discussion of each of these concerns. Senior risk professionals, industry experts, scholars and regulatory bodies will share experiences and ideas about various risk management practices along with the trends in the current business environment.

Our dedicated Organizing Committee sets out to continue the growing success of the Canadian Risk Forum. PRMIA thanks them for their contributions!
