Course Description

This course will review the basic concepts of risk measurement and risk management. We will review the nature of risk and the various dimensions of risk that an effective risk management program must address. The principal focus in the latter part of the course will be on risk management in the financial services industry. We will survey some of the practices and tools current in this industry along with their strengths and shortcomings. We will also review how firms organize their risk management functions and, importantly, the impact of the principal regulatory regimes on the risk management practice.
