  • About FRM

    The FRM (Financial Risk Manager) qualification is about effective risk measurement and management, essential to the success and survival of businesses such as banks, asset management, insurance, consulting companies and hedge funds. FRM is ideal if you work in or are looking to work in risk management.

    If you’re a financial risk professional or work with risk in a related field like auditing, trading or portfolio management, FRM can distinguish you from other finance professionals, and shows that you can add value to an organisation. There are no entry requirements to study FRM, but to certify, you must have at least two years of relevant work experience.
