Although we focus on the CFA charter here at 300 Hours, a lot of our readers are also interested and write in to us about the FRM qualification. And even if you aren't considering the FRM, it's always good to know more about other qualifications that you could possibly pursue.
Recently, the Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP) hosted a webinar where several frequently asked questions by potential and current FRM candidates were discussed by an FRM panel. In this article, I'll be covering the lessons learned from that discussion, including:
- comparing the FRM to other qualifications such as the CFA charter and the MBA
- discussing the quantitative aspects of FRM and whether this may be an issue
- how bright is the future for risk practitioners and FRM-qualified professionals
