Risk Management Symposium Set for Chicago May 1-3

April 8, 2005

Enron had a chief risk officer, so what went wrong?

Learn firsthand from a group of experts representing the insurance, financial, consulting, and academic communities how to design, build, and manage an effective, value creating enterprise risk management (ERM) program at a symposium on ERM, May 1-3 in Chicago. The focus of the event is on providing practical knowledge, tools, and techniques to help risk managers enhance, establish, or re-start an ERM program.

An estimated 500 risk management professionals will be able to choose from more than 30 sessions that focus on risk management strategies, modeling, risk metrics, and capital management for consumer products corporations, banks, asset management firms, insurance companies, pension systems, health care, and energy firms.

In response to the need for “executive level” education about the costs and benefits of ERM, the Symposium will feature a one day “ERM Essentials for Decision Makers” workshop on Sunday, May 1. This program has been designed for CFOs, CEOs, and others who oversee the ERM function.

Last year’s program was reportedly attended by more than 350 risk management professionals including chief risk officers, chief financial officers, chief actuaries, risk managers, investment professionals, ALM practitioners, and actuaries interested in risk management roles.

The ERM Symposium is sponsored by the Casualty Actuarial Society, the Professional Risk Managers’ International Association, and the Society of Actuaries.
