GARPThe Financial Risk Manager (FRM®) examination is administered by the Global Association of Risk Professionals™ (GARP®) and the FRM charter is the leading designation in risk management worldwide.  The body of risk knowledge contained in the syllabus is increasingly being globally recognized as setting the standard in global risk management practices.

It is the logical course of study for professionals working or planning to work in market, credit or operational risk. Certified FRMs have achieved positions such as Chief Risk Officer, Senior Risk Analyst, Head of Operational Risk, and Director of Investment Risk Management, to name a few.
