The Risk Management Association (RMA) has unveiled a Web-based comprehensive knowledge management tool for bankers.

eMentor is the first integrated source of information on credit and lending processes, concepts and practices, and it also provides information about specific industries.

"eMentor is an on-the-job partner for bankers," said Mark Zmiewski, RMA's director of Information Products. "It increases efficiency and productivity throughout the organization by providing access to very focused and relevant information. It's a perfect complement to other credit risk tools."

Using a searchable database on their PCs or laptops, bankers can instantly pinpoint the information they need to prospect, analyze a deal, structure a transaction, and monitor a relationship. eMentor offers immediate access to a rich and deep resource of credit risk and industry information.

"At KeyBank we are really looking forward to the rollout of the eMentor online system," said Terry Lehmann, vice president and credit training manager. "We were fortunate to pilot the product in its development stages, and received nothing but positive feedback from all of the Key employees that were involved. It's a great resource tool that can be integrated into our learning development plans because it's also an excellent educational tool."

RMA is the only financial services association that specializes in promoting effective credit risk management practices across the entire financial services industry. Its membership consists of more than 3,000 financial service providers. For more information about eMentor or RMA, contact Kathie Beans, RMA public relations manager, 215-446-4095.
