About RMA

Promoting sound risk management practices in Australia's Financial Services Industry

The RMA is considered the premier association for risk management professionals in the Australian financial services community.  Reflecting the growing professional development needs of our members,  we aim to attract new members to the community by extending the range of events on offer, establishing special interest forums across the spectrum of risks, and bringing a wider range of resources to our membership via on-line services. 

As risk is the responsibility of everyone in the business, our events have broad appeal.  We provide a range of opportunities for knowledge sharing between industry participants both directly in the Risk world as well as those in the business who we welcome as members.  

Our forums and events deal with the broad range of risks including credit, market, operational, compliance, liquidity, regulatory, technology, cyber crime, and payments risk disciplines across retail and business banking services, institutional banking and capital markets, wealth management and insurance.
