Hoboken, N.J. (PRWEB) January 25, 2016
John Wiley and Sons Inc. (NYSE: JWA and JWB), today announced its partnership with Christian Cooper, previous owner and publisher of frmstudycourse.com, in the creation of its new FRM Exam Review study materials, published on the Efficient Learning platform.
Christian is the lead author and instructor of Wiley’s FRM Exam Review lecture videos, practice questions, study guides and other prep materials for both Part I and Part II of the FRM Exam.
“With Christian’s experience as an FRM candidate and author, Wiley is able to develop a course with content and tools that support FRM candidates on a whole new level,” said David Pugh, VP & Executive Publisher, Knowledge Services, Wiley. “We are committed to building upon Christian’s legacy for delivering study materials that go beyond rote memorization. Our FRM product helps candidates connect the dots between complex risk management concepts, allowing them to more fully master the content. The result is a course that helps candidates earn the FRM designation and succeed in their careers.”
While running frmstudycourse.com, Christian garnered a reputation for helping candidates effectively prepare for and pass the challenging FRM Exam with materials designed from the candidate’s perspective. He has helped thousands of FRM candidates, from over eighty countries, successfully prepare for the FRM Exam.
For Christian, the multi-volume series was created to deliver benefits to candidates well beyond exam day.
“So many years beyond the financial crisis, the financial regulators know what Main Street fears: very little has changed. There remains an immense social cost to mismanaged financial risk.
Over the next 5 years, I estimate the number of worldwide candidates for the FRM will rapidly approach 100,000, and I believe fully half of those practitioners will adopt my program with Wiley as they pursue the designation. This is an extraordinary opportunity to have a conversation with the next generation of traders, bankers, and quants who will be in those seats.
The next financial crisis on the scale of 2008 is already in the making. That is inevitable. What will change is the industry’s response to it, and that response begins to change today. "
This new partnership solidifies Wiley position as an educational leader within the Financial Risk Manager (FRM) Program. Wiley’s FRM Exam Review materials will be hosted on the Efficient Learning platform, which also provides the technology backbone for Wiley’s market-leading CPA, CMA, CFA®, CMT and FINRA online review courses and certification materials.
