A Two-day course led by Robert Mark

The Global economic crisis has shown that improvements in quantitative risk management were not enough to safeguard the financial system. The crisis highlighted the need for great knowledge and understanding of the practical application of risk management principles in the financial sector by senior staff members across the business (i.e. not just risk managers). Continuous professional education is required to enable in-depth qualitative knowledge and understanding of risk management in financial institutions to allow business managers to effectively contribute to the risk management process.

Dr. Mark is the Founding CEO of Black Diamond Risk, which provides corporate governance, risk management consulting, risk software tools and transaction services.  He is the co-author of Risk Management (McGraw Hill, 2000) and a co-author of The Essentials of Risk Management (McGraw Hill, 2005).
