The GARP Global Practice Analysis is based on a triennial survey of financial risk managers that investigates who they are, where they work, what they do and how they do it – specifically, the skills and knowledge they need to perform their risk management responsibilities.
Survey findings inform the development of FRM Exam content and curriculum, direct GARP Continuing Professional Development initiatives and suggest themes for relevant GARP offerings for Chapter meetings, the GARP Risk Convention, webcasts and other educational outreach programs.
The Global Practice Analysis survey is overseen by the GPA Advisory Committee. GARP has completed three GPA surveys since 2011, resulting in a rich resource for identifying and examining trends in the practice of financial risk management.
The most recent GPA survey, administered in 2017, was completed by 3,210 qualified risk management professionals in 125 countries, more than half of them FRMs.
