All firms and persons acting in a fiduciary capacity with respect to a function they perform must fully understand the duties and responsibilities of serving in a fiduciary capacity, what constitutes fiduciary failure and the consequences of such failure. It is therefore imperative that fiduciaries understand the risks associated with being a fiduciary, the conditions that can give rise to a fiduciary risk event and the risk management processes that should exist to manage fiduciary risk.
This presentation will provide:
Individuals that should attend this training are persons who serve in a fiduciary capacity as individuals or as members of a fiduciary activity within a business as well as individuals who serve in a senior management, risk management, compliance or audit oversight capacity of activities with fiduciary responsibilities.

colleges and universities with risk management as part of a degree curriculum
