Founded in 1985, The Fiduciary and Investment Risk Management Association, Inc. (FIRMA) was created to provide the global fiduciary and investment management services industries with education and networking opportunities. FIRMA is a member-driven organization whose mission is to:

  • Provide comprehensive risk management knowledge and support through training opportunities and networking forums
  • Promote exemplary professional conduct and high ethical standards in the practice of audit, compliance, risk management, and regulatory supervision
  • Address emerging issues in the global fiduciary and asset management risk environment

Compliance and risk management issues have become increasingly complex. Professionals who understand and appreciate the challenges associated with these existing and emerging issues insist on specialized education to assist them in performing critical responsibilities. One of the greatest strengths of FIRMA is that the Board and its Committees are comprised of members who play key roles in their institution’s daily management of enterprise risks. This involvement provides FIRMA members with the most relevant information and insights pertaining to the latest issues involving fiduciary and investment management risks.
