Financial risks are of particularly great importance for day-to-day banking. The financial risk refers to the risk of a business’ cash flows not being sufficient to pay banking loans and fulfil other financial responsibilities. The level of financial risk, therefore, relates less to the business’ operations themselves and more to the amount of debt a business incurs to finance those operations. The Financial Risk Manager (FRM®) designation is the globally recognised standard for those who manage risk. During this exam training you will gain knowledge of the fundamental risks for banking institutions, government regulators, investment funds, consulting firms and financial services institutions around the world in their day-to-day operations. This course prepares you for FRM Part I.
This training has been developed for risk managers, business analysts, accountants, central bank auditors, internal auditors and treasury consultants.
