PRM Spotlight – Alex Khayat, PRM 

A featured article of our April 2021 edition of PRMIA's Intelligent Risk quarterly newsletter

As Chief of Portfolio Management & Financial Institutions, Alex Khayat has used his PRM™ credential to thoughtfully analyze potential investment opportunities. “The PRM has proven to be a very valuable asset for me in my role in investment management. Performance and risk analytics are an essential part of my job, and the knowledge gained through PRMIA has been a very important dimension in helping me develop a multi-faceted approach to investment analysis, management, and monitoring.” Alex credits the PRM case studies and overall in-depth training in risk as essentials for helping him develop new risk solutions and metrics on the job. “The learning enhanced my knowledge in risk management and provided me with round perspective on investment allocations and exposures. I have recommended the PRM Designation to others.”

Completing the exam in just 12 months can feel like a very fast track to the PRM, but Alex found the materials provided by PRMIA comprehensive enough to prepare him to sit for the exam. “I spent evenings and weekends preparing, but it was worth it,” he added.

Asked if he felt there were additional opportunities for him because of his PRM, he smiled. “It is a very good asset which allowed me to take on additional responsibilities throughout my career.”

Today, Alex adds the PRM to his long list of credentials including CFA, CAIA, CMA, CFM and CIPM. He appreciates the sharing that occurs at risk conferences that brought the PRM credential to his attention and summarizes what the PRM means to him, “The PRM has broadened my perspectives.”
