A little bit about us

Launched in 2019, CRMI (Corporate Risk Management Institute) is the fruit of a long-term vision by Chedid Capital, a leading insurance and reinsurance investment group in the Middle East and Africa (MEA), to create regional centers of excellence at par with the world’s largest financial and insurance hubs.

The institute marks a milestone for educational and professional development in MEA’s insurance and finance fields. Initially launched through a strategic partnership between Chedid Capital and the renowned London-based IRM (Institute of Risk Management), CRMI aims at promoting, formalizing, and scaling a culture of risk management, corporate governance, and compliance among financial and non-financial professionals in the region. Today, its operation spans a host of training programs, accredited courses, and diplomas by prestigious global and regional academic and institutional partners, with CRMI members holding access to a world-class learning and development track.

While CRMI’s network currently covers Lebanon, the UAE, and Qatar, Chedid Capital is eyeing an ambitious footprint for the institute across its markets of
operation. The group operates in 45 countries across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and most recently, Pakistan and the South East of the Indian continent. Its
subsidiary, Chedid Re, a Lloyd’s official broker, is among the 20 largest reinsurance brokers in the world.
