Imarticus Learning launches its Online Certification in Global Risk Management

imarticusMumbai, October 9, 2015: Imarticus Learning, a leading Investment Banking and Analytics institute, launches its Certification in Global Risk (CIGR), an interactive instructor-led online program on Risk Management. Risk, as a function is constantly evolving and failure to efficiently manage risk has led to collapse of numerous banks and institutions.

Keeping in mind the key takeaways from its recently concluded roundtable on Risk Management, Imarticus was quick to indentify the need to up skill the existing workforce in the business, operations, technology, compliance and risk divisions.

This Certification in Global Risk (CIGR) course will cover various important areas of Risk such as Quantitative Analysis, Valuation & Risk Models, and Enterprise Risk, along with Market, Credit and Operational Risk. After undertaking this 48-hour program, participants will be well suited to apply for the FRM examinations.

Going forward, evolving global markets will generate higher participation from retail and institutional participants. Risk, as a function, will play a larger role now than ever before. The CIGR curriculum and delivery methodology prepares candidates for an inter-connected global market. Navneet Munot, Chief Investment Officer, SBI Fund Management, rightly mentioned that “We live in a world where markets are extremely linked with each other – bond markets, currency, equities, commodities, money markets. Money moves at the speed of thought, and every event all over the world affects us.”

Nikhil Barshikar, Managing Director of Imarticus Learning believes that “The Risk function within Financial Services is going through a sea change and instead of restricting itself to a support and monitoring function, should evolve into a function that will help generate new business and opportunities. Our CIGR program enables organizations and individuals to effectively skill themselves with the right blend of academic input and practical exposure to leverage such opportunities.”


This program will be conducted on weekends over a 2-month period and hosted on Imarticus’ state-of-the-art online platform where participants have the ability to login from any location on any internet-enabled device. Delivered by trainers with over 15 years of relevant domain knowledge, this program is key to a career in the field of risk, regulations and compliance in the financial services arena.
