The RMA was founded in the US in 1914 to help commercial bankers make better lending decisions through the exchange of credit information. Today, the RMA is the only association that specialises in promoting effective and prudent risk management practices for institutions of all sizes, across the entire financial services industry.
RMA Australia, whilst affiliated with RMA HQ, is governed and operated as an independent chapter. It was incorporated in February 2004 to represent members at a national level. RMA Australia has since established itself as a robust and authoritative local voice in the global risk management community.
