Leading Global Experts to Explore, Address Latest Developments in Enterprise Risk Management at April 23-25 Symposium in Chicago

Learn firsthand from a distinguished group of experts representing the corporate, financial, energy, consulting, and academic communities about the latest developments in enterprise risk management (ERM) at the world's largest symposium on ERM, April 23-25 in Chicago, Illinois. The focus of this non-profit event is on providing practical knowledge, tools, and techniques to help risk managers enhance or establish a value-creating ERM program.

"By bringing together the ERM knowledge from a variety of industries, this Symposium aspires to build a solid cross-disciplinary framework for senior management to create systematic value through effective management of risk and capital," commented Valentina Isakina, Chair, ERM Symposium Committee.

An estimated 500 risk management professionals will be able to choose from over 20 sessions that focus on risk management strategies, modeling, risk metrics, and capital management for consumer products corporations, banks, asset management firms, insurance companies, pension systems, health care, and energy firms.

In response to the need for "executive level" education about the costs and benefits of ERM, the Symposium will also feature an "ERM Essentials for Decision Makers" workshop on Sunday, April 23. This program has been designed for CFOs, CEOs, and others who oversee the ERM function.

Last year's Symposium was attended by over 450 risk management professionals including chief risk officers, chief financial officers, chief actuaries, risk managers, investment professionals, asset/liability management practitioners, and actuaries interested in risk management roles.

The ERM Symposium is sponsored by the Casualty Actuarial Society, the Professional Risk Managers' International Association, and the Society of Actuaries. Members of the press are welcome to attend the Symposium and are asked to register with Mike Boa, CAS director of communications and research, at 703-276-3100 in advance of the meeting.
