Careers in Risk: PRMIA Panel Offers Expert Advice

What are the non -technical skills I need? Do I need to be a quant? How do I get to become an MD in Risk Management at my bank?

These are samples of many questions that came up in May when PRMIA organized a “Careers in Risk” panel event in New York for members and non-members. Hosted by PwC and moderated by Michael Alix, PwC FS Advisory Risk Leader, the evening brought together over 75 guests and risk practice leaders from three top Executive Search firms, who were asked questions from both the moderator and a lively audience.

The panelists, Lisa Zonino, Partner, Financial Services Practice Group at Egon Zehnder; Robert Iommazzo, Managing Partner at Seba International; and Bryant Yao, VP, Quant and Risk Recruitment at GQR, each provided insights into what their financial services clients are looking for in the skills and competences of risk managers at all levels.
