There is an active market for risk management professionals at all levels of experience throughout the financial services sector in Belgium at present. Risk Managers are sought after in order to assess any threats to the business and adhere to changing regulations.
Necessary experience and qualifications
Employers look for professionals with mathematical or quantitative academic backgrounds for junior level roles, with individuals undertaking additional qualifications such as the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) or Financial Risk Manager (FRM) qualifications as they progress their careers.
Progression to senior risk roles requires professionals to have experience in setting up and managing risk infrastructures, reporting to risk and audit committees and in some cases, to executive management or the board. Senior risk managers are also responsible for managing the relationship with regulatory authorities. The ability to present complex information and how it impacts an organisation, in a clear manner, is very important.
