In the preceding post we talked about job as a financial analyst. Today we discuss Risk Management as a career. Overview Risk Management: Within the financial services industry, risk management involves assessment and quantification of business risks, and then taking measures to control or reduce them. Educational requirements: To work in risk management, a bachelor’s degree is the bare minimum, often an MBA also is preferred. Strong quantitative skills are a must.Certifications like the PRM or FRM provide the necessary backing to your resume. A globally recognized certification program puts employees on the same footing. Organizations consider them as a means to ensure that everyone in particular job groups or functions has the same level of experience, knowledge, and ability.
