Jennifer Foote, Senior Vice President – Risk & Compliance at Investors Community Bank, was recently awarded the Certified Enterprise Risk Professional (CERP) designation from the American Bankers Association.
Earning the CERP certification validates Foote’s experience and thorough understanding of the complexities of risk management. The CERP certification is awarded to individuals who demonstrate excellence in the field of bank enterprise risk management. To qualify for the CERP certification, individuals must have certain levels of experience and education in the risk management profession, pass an exam and agree to abide by a code of ethics. The CERP exam covers credit risk, financial risk and non-financial risk.

Financial services professionals, working through ABA, initiated the CERP certification and eight others in order to establish meaningful standards of knowledge in specialty areas of the financial services industry. ABA Professional Certifications formally recognize those who meet these standards and meet professional continuing education and development requirements.
