Swiss Risk Association in Romandie
The Swiss Risk Association (SRA) is a non-profit organisation and open forum for risk management. Through events, discussions and knowledge transfer, the SRA strengthens Switzerland’s position as a financial competence centre.
The Swiss Risk Association was created 10 years ago and was mainly covering the Swiss German Part of Switzerland. In order to expand our organization within the French part of Switzerland, we created a new Chapter “Romandie”, which was successfully launched last year. As part of the development in the Romandie, we are excited to bring an unforgettable evening and exclusive networking opportunities at the CRO Circle Dinner. This new event format has been a great success in Zurich and therefore, we are excited to have one of such prestigious event in “Romandie”.
The goals of the Romandie Chapter are to develop the exchange of knowhow and networking opportunities via the organization of Chapter Event covering various Risk topics, in the areas of Private banking, asset management and commodities trading etc.
Why CRO circle
The CRO Circle institutionalizes the needs to informally debate, share experience, best practices, thoughts and ideas within colleagues of different financial institutions having a position at level C- , Executive Board members, Board of directors or responsible for Risk Management . It should also help you to identify risk topics that you didn’t think of yet. It provides you with very exclusive networking opportunities and surely new friendships.
The “CRO Circle” targets the most senior risk managers, the leaders who are responsible to identify and manage the risk for a company comprehensively. You can become a “CRO Circle” member, if your company is a Corporate Member of the Swiss Risk Association.
