On November 18, the Montréal Chapter of the Professional Risk Managers’ International Association (PRMIA) held its 13th Finance & Risk Management Career Conference at Concordia University in Montréal.

In addition to speakers from different areas of finance, risk management and financial engineering, there was a trade show and, for the first time, the CIA participated as an exhibitor.

Working at the booth were Sylvain Fortier—pictured right—on behalf of the ERM Applications Committee, resident actuary Chris Fievoli, and Josée Racette, project manager, communications and public affairs department.

It was attended by the conferences' largest audience: between 300 and 400 students and recent graduates from ESG UQAM (the Université du Québec à Montréal's business school), McGill University, Concordia University, Université de Sherbrooke, Université Laval, the HEC Montréal business school and Université de Montréal.

Presentations were made on venture capital/private equity, asset management, pension funds/hedge funds, risk management, investment banking.
