    They are both almost equally well respected within the financial industry. The two qualifications are very similar in rigor and scope, and are treated at par for recruitment purposes.

    But since FRM has existed since sevaral years before the PRM came into existence, it is generally more popular and better known OUTSIDE risk management circles. Although the high cost of FRM to obtain and to maintain as compared to PRM, and the fact that FRM is awarded by a for-profit organization makes it less attractive to risk professionals.

    I am currently pursuing CFA and PRM qualifications.
