The PRMIA Institute, a 501(c)3 non-profit supporting organization of the Professional Risk Manager's International Association, serves the global risk management community with leading thought, peer-vetted research, and stewardship of the risk management profession.

Institute Initiatives: 


New technologies and the advent of Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) help risk managers make better decisions. There is also a new risk profile that emanates from this adoption.


How our profession responds to environmental disruption and climate change is an emerging topic which warrants up-to-date analysis. Learn More.


Aiding developing regions by establishing sound risk management practice in the inclusive finance sector is driven by the Risk Management Initiative in Microfinance (RIM).


The Institute is working to develop Standards of Practice for Risk Management. Bringing standard methods, processes, and practices to our profession is a worthy goal for the industry.
