Mutual Fund Risk Managers

Exploring This Job

You can learn more about the field of risk management by reading books about finance, such as Risk Management and Financial Institutions (John Wiley & Sons, 2018) and An Introduction to Derivative Securities, Financial Markets, and Risk Management (World Scientific Publishing Co., 2019). Talk to risk managers about their jobs. Ask your counselor or a business teacher for help setting up an information interview. Once you enter college, join risk management or business clubs. Consider competing in the Spencer-RIMS Risk Management Challenge (, an eight-month long competition for college students in the U.S. and Canada that will help you to develop your risk management skills. Participants receive a case study and must develop a comprehensive risk management program to address the issue.
