ANZIIF announces FERMA partnership
The Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance (ANZIIF) has partnered with the Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA) to provide professional designation and ongoing professional education to risk professionals across Europe.

The deal follows the partnership between ANZIIF and PARIMA (Pan-Asia Risk and Insurance Management Association) late last year; and was forged in order to help FERMA set up a certification for demonstrating the professionalism and legitimacy of risk professionals in Europe.

The global collaboration will see ANZIIF provide FERMA with materials and content for risk management certification and develop examinations in time for the first assessments which will be held in September. FERMA will remain in charge of approving candidates who wish to take the certification.

“We are thrilled to enter a partnership with FERMA and provide Europe with world-class education and training,” said ANZIIF CEO Prue Willsford. “With partnerships already established throughout Asia Pacific, partnering with FERMA provides ANZIIF a great opportunity to expand our horizons and have a greater impact on the insurance industry as we strive for excellence.”
