Recent history has shown that a job title is no guarantee of professionalism. Across the world, the competence and ethics of politicians, the media, economists and other professions have come under intense scrutiny.
Employers, regulators, customers and shareholders now rightly take less on trust than they used to. They want assurance that professionals have the knowledge, experience and ethical behaviour that today's organisations need.
This is particularly relevant to the loan and risk profession. Those working in loan and risk hold the physical and financial security of organisations and people in their hands.
High standards are vital to ensuring loan & risk management gains the professional recognition it deserves. As the professional body for loan & risk practitioners, CILRM leads the development of standards.
