Risk Management

Investors in financial markets and regulators expect corporations to establish an adequate and up-to-date risk management function. A proper understanding of risk management techniques is essential in today’s markets since the decisions of risk management professionals such as treasurers, risk analysts, risk controllers and portfolio managers may determine the fate of a whole institution.
