Risk Management in the Financial Services Sector Conference

 The premier forum for providers Investment Services, Forex, and Binary Options, offering a comprehensive presentation of the relevant regulations regarding Risk Management in the sector, practical advice on all relevant issues, and presentation of various solutions.

As the sector is settling after a few turbulent years due to the global financial crisis, firms within the sector need to respond to large changes, both from a regulatory perspective and from the ever-increasing strategic challenges to manage risk. Even though the post-crisis surge of regulatory changes is diminishing, companies are constantly faced with market shocks, with latest being the decision of the Swiss National Bank to abolish the exchange rate cap, sending new shockwaves within the sector.

EIMF is organizing the ‘Risk Management in the Financial Service Sector’ Conference, a unique international conference in Cyprus in the challenges the companies within the sector face.

Participants will have a unique opportunity to be updated by renowned professionals in the field, to be presented with practical solutions, and exchange views and discuss issues pertaining to the current affairs, both from a regulatory and from a practical perspective.
