ICA International Diploma in Governance, Risk and Compliance


The regulatory environment, and consequently the role of compliance, has changed significantly in recent years. There has always been a significant overlap between regulatory compliance and risk management - the compliance function’s fundamental purpose after all, is to manage the firm’s regulatory risk. And a firm’s governance, culture and organisational behaviour are core to how all risk is managed within the firm. It is both an exciting and challenging time to be a compliance professional and this course will ensure that you are fully equipped with the knowledge, skills and understanding to be the very best compliance professional that you can be.
