PRMIA Toronto is proud to host the 6th Annual Canadian Risk Forum. Senior risk professionals, industry experts, and scholars will share their thought leadership insight on the changing landscape of risk management. Join us as we take an in depth look at this topic. Toronto welcomes PRMIA members from the entire PRMIA community to join us at this Forum.

The theme of this year’s Canadian Risk Forum is the Changing Landscape of Risk Management, and our broad discussions will cover:

• The changing roles of financial risk management: Market and credit risk management groups are in a post-expansion phase, facing pressure on head count, but at the same extensive regulatory expectations, with the most intense the “Basel IV” banking reforms.
• Emerging risks: Conduct and culture. Cybersecurity. Vendor risk. Environmental and social. Non-financial risks have become an increasing focus of financial institutions. How are financial institutions managing the expanded risk management mandate? How are they coming to terms with these risks?
• The role of technology and data: For risk managers, new technologies offer the possibility to leverage more with a smaller number of resources. Robotic process automation can already alleviate some routine tasks, machine learning holds out the promise of gaining new insights from data. How are tools evolving for risk managers?

The two-day event will be preceded by a special training session on Big Data, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in Financial Risk Management. A learner with some or no previous knowledge in this space will understand the fundamentals of this new science and how it is applied in finance and risk management. Spend a day before the conference begins exploring:

• Introduction to big data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence in financial risk management
• Measuring and detecting risk exposures using ML and AI techniques
• ML and big data for financial risk management
• Governance of advanced data modelling techniques
