2017 Canadian Risk Forum

November 13 - 15, 2017

Risk Management 3.0: Emerging Risks – Managing the Knowns and the Unknowns

PRMIA Montreal is proud to host the 5th Annual Canadian Risk Forum to address emerging risks and insight on managing the knowns...and the unknowns. Industry-leading speakers will address the critical issues currently facing the risk management community and will explore the future of risk.

Nov. 13: Pre-conference Workshop
Nov. 14 - 15: Canadian Risk Forum

The financial ecosystem has been exposed to drastic changes. In the past few years, financial and risk practitioners have witnessed the emergence of a changing regulatory overhaul, disruptive technologies, multifaceted management environments and shocking shifts in the political landscape.

These changes entail investment and risk professionals to adopt a nimble mindset long-term. Within this context, new requirements are emerging both in terms of human skill sets and risk management knowledge.

PRMIA will dedicate the 5th edition of its Canadian Risk Forum to an in depth discussion of each of these concerns. Senior risk professionals, industry experts, scholars and regulatory bodies will share experiences and ideas about various risk management practices along with the trends in the current business environment.

PRMIA sets out to continue the growing success in its 5th year of the Canadian Risk Forum.  Thank you to our 2017 PRMIA Canadian Risk Forum Organizing Committee!
