Selby Jennings is honored to partner with Risk.com on the upcoming virtual Risk USA conference. Taking place on November 16 - 19, the event will virtually bring together 450+ industry front-runners to explore the direction of risk, covering market, credit, liquidity and investment risk. Thought leaders across the industry will also discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by the disruption of new technologies and new ways of working and the disintermediation of old business models.

The virtual format is an exciting opportunity to bring together top professionals from across the country, regardless of geographic location, for a week of learning and networking. Selby Jennings Head of Risk Management Recruitment, Anthony McCann, will have the privilege of serving as the Chair on day three of the conference, and will offer opening remarks for the day. “We are very excited to partner with Risk.net which is giving us the opportunity to sit down with industry leaders in the risk management space to dive into some of the key aspects effecting and shaping the risk management industry and what the landscape will look like moving in 2021," says McCann. "We are eager to discuss some of the changes ongoing in the risk management space and how firms are adapting to get ahead.”

On November 19th, Selby Jennings Principal Recruitment Consultant, Karima Jibril, will moderate a panel of esteemed leaders titled, “Rethinking diversity, inclusion and culture in the light of historical movements for equality: why are these elements so important in building a foundation for a strong risk management team?” Karima will be joined by Stephanie Bontemps, Chief Risk Officer and Executive Vice President at First Republic Bank, Judith Hilton, Chief Risk Officer at DWS Americas, Tatiana Segal, Chief Risk Officer at Morgan Stanley Investment Management, and Pietro Toscano, Global Head of Multi-Asset Investment Risk at Invesco.

Jibril comments, “It is exciting to be steering a conversation on this important topic with leaders in this industry. While diversity and inclusion have been at the forefront of many of our recruitment efforts for our clients, I think it is important to not only say that there needs to be more diversity but to understand why it is needed and how improving elements of diversity and inclusion can contribute to improving team culture and performance.”

We look forward to connecting virtually with the conference delegates and to learning from top leaders about insights on this past year and the future of the industry.
