Governance and risk management

Every business needs robust risk management, but nowhere is that more important than in banking and finance. If you’re a senior financial services professional – from mid-management to board level – you need to be able to navigate:

  • operational and financial risks
  • regulation and governance
  • the increasing supervisory focus on conduct and organisational culture.

We offer three internationally recognised qualifications in governance and risk management qualifications. 

Level 4 Risk and Regulation in Banking (RRB) covers the core principles of risk and how banks are regulated.

Level 6 Managing Operational Risk & Governance (MOPR) looks at operational risk management and best practice bank governance.

Level 6 Financial Risk Management in Banks (FRMB) evaluates how banks manage financial market, credit, and liquidity risks within the current economic and regulatory environment.


SME lending and alternative data

Alternative data is transforming the way banks lend to small and medium enterprises (SMEs). In both mature and emerging markets, it offers an opportunity to bridge the credit gap and increase portfolios. But how can you be sure that your teams are skilled enough to use it effectively?

We can teach your teams how to:

  • deploy alternative lending techniques
  • adapt them to market conditions
  • use data confidently and
  • tailor solutions for your SME clients.

Your business will benefit from reduced risk, increased sales and a skilled and more empowered workforce.

Digital banking and finance, fintech, digitisation and data management

Banking is changing. The traditional banks are under pressure to adapt as they battle for market share with fintechs and the new challenger banks. Is your organisation ready to take advantage of the opportunities digitisation offers?

We can help you and your teams understand digital disruption so that you can ensure your organisation remains competitive.
