ARiMI-CERM

Certified Enterprise-wide Risk Manager - CERM™

Over the past 10 years, ERM has evolved from an innovative concept to a global best-practice standard for the Management of Risks in Organizations. Regular corporate collapses and continuous crises in the global financial system have reminded us of the importance of effective risk management.

Therefore, EFFECTIVE risk management has become an imperative for boards and management because of its vast potential to achieve SUSTAINABLE PROFITABLE PERFORMANCE by increasing the reliability of operations, building resilience, and fostering innovation & value creation. However, implementing ERM is a very challenging undertaking; many organizations struggle through the process and fail to achieve any tangible benefits.

The purpose of CERM™ Program is to develop ERM Champions able to design and drive the implementation of ERM programs in the system and culture of their organizations to improve the long-term sustainability potential and nurture the conditions for profitable growth

The CERM™ program has set a new industry standard for Risk Professionals in Asia. It is conducted by the Asia Risk Management Institute (ARiMI), the leading Professional Development Institute in Enterprise Risk Management in Asia.
