Under this agreement, McGraw-Hill Professional will re-issue and revise Volume I of the PRM Handbook, the official handbook for the PRM certification and a comprehensive guide to current theory and best practices in risk management. Replacing Volume I of the PRM Handbook are three new books in the series:
â¢ The Professional Risk Managersâ Guide to Finance Theory
â¢ The Professional Risk Managersâ Guide to Financial Instruments
â¢ The Professional Risk Managersâ Guide to Financial Markets
In addition, McGraw Hill Professional will re-issue PRMIAâs Energy and Environmental Markets book as the Professional Risk Managersâ Guide to Energy Markets.
These four books will release in December 2007. Tentative plans are to issue second editions of the PRM Handbook Volume II and Volume III by late 2008.
"The PRM Handbook is in use in over 120 countries, at all of the top financial service companies and is core reading material at several graduate programs in risk management,â says David Koenig, President of the PRMIA Institute and Past Chair, PRMIA Board of Directors. âOur new series with McGraw-Hill Companies will extend the reach of our existing publications, and bring new texts, all written to a higher standard, to the risk marketplace."
âMcGraw-Hill and PRMIA share the goal of providing financial professionals with must-have information from the worldâs leading risk practitioners,â says Jeanne Glasser, editorial director of McGraw-Hill Professional.
Going forward, PRMIA and McGraw-Hill Companies are targeting four to six new publications every year. PRMIAâs Academic Advisory Council will provide recommendations for new titles and authors.
