PRM01: Firm-Wide Risk Management

Comments from past participants

"As risk management is everybody's business, not just CEOs' or Risk heads', everyone should attend. This seminar can assist them to bring about an awareness of the importance of risk management, and to equip them with the requisite knowledge and foundational tools."

- Mr. Warwick Chau Kai Yeung
RHB Bank Bhd, Singapore.
[Class of April 2002]


"Trainer was able to impart his knowledge on risk management and foundational mathematical tools very effectively. Rather than just lecturing from notes, he calls himself a 'facilitator', getting trainees to be effectively involved in group discussions and case studies."

- Mrs. Irene Sim
KBC Bank N.V., Singapore.
[Class of April 2002]


"This seminar was beneficial to me as Bank supervisor in our future role in that, moving forward, we need to understand the quantitative models that should be developed and can be applied by our financial institutions. I gained an overview of what should be done by supervisors in coming years as we approach the Basle 2007 Accord."

- Mrs. Dewi Fadjarsarie H.
Bank Indonesia, Indonesia.

[Class of August 2003]


"I found the seminar to be very helpful. My practical knowledge of active risk management and its tools were next to zero before I attended the seminar. My thoughts were always skewed towards the point that equity investments' risk were rather difficult to manage and mitigate as it was primarily market-driven. My thoughts have been clarified after attending the seminar."

- Mr. Ching Weng Jin
Malaysian Assurance Alliance Berhad, Malaysia.

"There’s the saying: “If I give you a fish, you eat for a day. If I teach you to fish, you eat for a life-time.” I applaud PI-ETA for taking the latter as the approach. We learn the rudiments of concepts, and learn the context for its application! It goes a long, long way …"

"I really enjoyed the seminar and the instant rapport between all the participants. Although it was tough going at times (especially the number crunching and trying to remember what I had learnt in high school!), I would rate the seminar as essential as building blocks for quantitative risk management. Seminar covered a lot of ground, over and above expectations and ‘set the stage’ for higher threshold of learning and understanding risk from the quantitative aspect. Highly recommended especially for those with mathematical and statistical background."
