Malta Independent - - BUSINESS & FINANCE -

22 Sep­tem­ber marked RSM’s fifth an­nual RSM World Day and the largest cel­e­bra­tion of the com­mon vi­sion, val­ues and pur­pose that the sixth largest in­de­pen­dent au­dit, tax and con­sult­ing net­work has ever seen.

Through a wide va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties all around the world, staff in RSM firms across more than 70 coun­tries united in col­league, client and char­ity events to cel­e­brate RSM’s core val­ues of col­lab­o­ra­tive work­ing, deep in­di­vid­ual un­der­stand­ing, idea and in­sight shar­ing for client ben­e­fit.

RSM in Malta has been a mem­ber of the RSM net­work for 11 years. This year, the Malta team came to­gether for a day of team build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties at the Scouts In­ter­na­tional Camp­site in Ghajn Tuffieha, which in­cluded team games and outdoor cook­ing.

Maria Mi­callef, Man­ag­ing Part­ner at RSM in Malta, said, “RSM World Day brings to­gether a global net­work of pro­fes­sion­als to share the com­mon vi­sion and val­ues of RSM. Th­ese events help us to align our think­ing to the global net­work and brand am­bi­tion. Our oper­a­tion in Malta con­tin­ues to grow suc­cess­fully and our 120 staff mem­bers make sure they help our clients move for­ward with con­fi­dence ev­ery day.”

RSM World Day ac­tiv­i­ties in­cluded client events, staff break­fasts, vol­un­teer/char­ity work, and team build­ing to fur­ther strengthen en­gage­ment with RSM’s com­mon pur­pose and in­crease their un­der­stand­ing of the RSM brand val­ues, the global net­work, its ca­pa­bil­i­ties, and its po­si­tion­ing – ‘The Power of Be­ing Un­der­stood’. The net­work also ini­ti­ated a ma­jor global ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paign across in­ter­na­tional me­dia ti­tles and in ma­jor in­ter­na­tional air­ports high­light­ing RSM’s be­lief in the im­por­tance of de­vel­op­ing a deep mu­tual un­der­stand­ing in or­der to build suc­cess­ful busi­ness re­la­tion­ships. RSM World Day 2016 falls nearly a full year af­ter the RSM net­work came to­gether un­der a sin­gle uni­fied brand, re­in­forc­ing the net­work’s global strength in pro­vid­ing con­sis­tently high qual­ity au­dit, tax and con­sult­ing ser­vices to en­tre­pre­neur­ial, growth-fo­cused or­gan­i­sa­tions wher­ever they may be.

Jean Stephens, CEO of RSM In­ter­na­tional said: “RSM World Day is a cel­e­bra­tion of our shared val­ues as a global net­work and a spe­cial event in RSM’s cal­en­dar. We’re a peo­ple busi­ness, and our clients value the in­sights and ex­per­tise of our staff, so keep­ing our em­ploy­ees en­gaged with ac­tiv­i­ties like RSM World Day and en­cour­ag­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion and en­gage­ment through the RSM Academy is cru­cial to en­sur­ing all our mem­ber firms are work­ing to­gether for the ben­e­fit of clients. We may be a large num­ber of firms across over 120 coun­tries, but we are also a global, uni­fied net­work.” Cred­it­info Academy was es­tab­lished with the pur­pose to as­sist in the de­vel­op­ment of sus­tain­able fi­nan­cial and credit man­age­ment and help­ing busi­nesses to in­crease their ef­fi­ciency through in­no­va­tive tech­nolo­gies. The ob­jec­tive is to of­fer a di­ver­si­fied range of train­ing which will help or­gan­i­sa­tions as well as cus­tomers to en­hance their fi­nan­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity. Cred­it­info Academy’s mis­sion is to lay down re­spon­si­ble lend­ing prac­tices through the in­volve­ment of fi­nan­cial lit­er­acy pro­grammes. Cred­it­info Academy be­lieves that through its cour­ses it can in­flu­ence the de­vel­op­ment to­wards a more sus­tain­able and fi­nan­cial in­clu­sive econ­omy. In or­der to be closer to its clients, part­ners and past and fu­ture stu­dents, it is launch­ing the Cred­it­info Academy web­site www.cred­it­in­foa­cademy.com, where one can ex­plore fur­ther the academy’s train­ing of­fer­ing.

Cred­it­info Academy, part of Cred­it­info Group, is a skills de­vel­op­ment and train­ing provider that de­liv­ers generic and cus­tomised train­ing ser­vices. Cred­it­info Academy fo­cuses on pro­vid­ing train­ing for clients who want to de­velop their skills to im­prove op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency and over­all busi­ness per­for­mance; as well as train con­sumers and as­sist the pub­lic sec­tor in their quest for fi­nan­cial in­clu­sion.

It has iden­ti­fied that one of the chal­lenges fac­ing fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions, es­pe­cially Fin­Tech com­pa­nies, is the fast pace of tech­no­log­i­cal de­vel­op­ments and Fin­Tech in­no­va­tions, which hap­pens around the globe. The is­sue here is to en­sure that the staff man­ag­ing those new prod­ucts and dig­i­tal­ized lend­ing pro­cesses pos­sess a rel­e­vant set of skills. The conservative ap­proach to credit con­trol and mon­i­tor­ing won’t work in this case.

Credit of­fi­cers are no longer deal­ing with Ex­cel spread­sheets and direct in­ter­views with clients. They have to adapt to new tech­nolo­gies, un­der­stand the lat­est prod­ucts and un­der­stand the trends, as well as the new risks which come with it. That is why the Cred­it­info Academy was es­tab­lished, to as­sist those pro­fes­sion­als with such chal­lenges. Credit Risk Man­age­ment is not only about an­a­lyz­ing credit ap­pli­ca­tions and over­look­ing loan port­fo­lios, it starts with ac­quir­ing the client through var­i­ous new means, man­ag­ing and mon­i­tor­ing the fol­low-ups.

It of­fers var­i­ous sem­i­nars, for ex­am­ple, Im­prov­ing your Credit Risk Man­age­ment prac­tices, Fraud Risk Man­age­ment – a se­ries of work­shops and Ad­vanced Credit Scor­ing to men­tion just a few. This month the academy will con­duct a three-day spe­cialised sem­i­nar on Ad­vanced Credit Scor­ing – one will be held in Nairobi be­tween 12-14 Oc­to­ber and the sec­ond in Dar es Salaam be­tween 19-21 Oc­to­ber.
