Finance has always been based on two pillars: expected returns and risk. In today's times it is necessary to stress the need to properly weigh the latter when making, or advising others in, financial and investment decisions. The Courses in Financial Risk Management has the objective of presenting advanced techniques and concepts used in modern risk management in our complex global financial system.
This course examines modern techniques for managing financial risks. Financial risks are generally classified into market risks, due to movement in financial prices or volatilities, credit risks, due to fact that counterparties are unwilling or unable to fulfil their contractual obligations, liquidity risks, when transactions cannot be conducted at prevailing market prices, perhaps due to cash flow constraints, and operational risks, which arise from human or technical problems.
Background to the Problem
In an era of instant global communications, interdependent economies, and dramatic international political developments, an understanding of underlying economic, political, and social forces is critical. Risks to business can potentially threaten not just profitability of a business, but also can lead to a crisis around its very existence. A successful business must have skilled employees to identify and manage potentially damaging risks to ensure progressive business continuity.
