About the course

Never has a course been more needed than this unique five-day immersive programme. The world of risk management continues to face some of the toughest operating challenges we’ve ever seen. The global financial world is constantly changing and along with it so does the face of risk management as we know it.

In recent years, many of the much relied upon practices and theories have been shown to be flawed by design and a new way of looking at “real-world” management has emerged.

As a result, risk managers have been investing heavily in improving their technical and practical skills in order to meet the challenges the markets and regulators continue to throw at them – you need to do the same.

Covering all facets of modern risk management from a practitioner’s perspective, this dynamic course will undoubtedly have a profound impact on your performance and your career as a highly sought after risk professional. In today’s increasingly challenging markets, the importance of training becomes ever more significant.

The IFF School of Risk Management represents a whole new approach to training. Through case study analysis, practical examples and hands-on workshops, this course will equip you with invaluable skills that will dramatically improve all aspects of your risk management knowledge, both in theory and in practice.

Covering all aspects of risk management, this course will have a profound impact on your performance in the market and your career as a whole.
