Frankfurt Institute for Risk Management and Regulation

The Frankfurt Institute for Risk Management and Regulation (FIRM)

The Association for Risk Management and Regulation (Gesellschaft für Risikomanagement und Regulierung e.V.), in which banks and associations, initiatives, audit firms, the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht, BaFin) and the State of Hessen are involved, was founded in June 2009. The purpose of the Association is to conduct and promote teaching and research in the fields of risk management and regulation, particularly within the framework of the financial industry, primarily through the Frankfurt Institute for Risk Management and Regulation (FIRM).

The Association therefore supports and finances the teaching and research activities carried out by FIRM, with the Institute making the results of its research accessible to members and the general public as well as providing training and further education for risk managemen in cooperation with the Goethe University and the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management.
