4. Financial Risk Management

This module introduces and examines the sources of risk, together with the methods used to measure and minimise it. Managing risk is a key activity for firms and a range of different approaches is outlined. Firms may either seek to examine the totality of the risks they face in the aggregate, an approach known as ‘top-down’; or build up their exposures from the individual risks, a procedure referred to as ‘ground-up’. In practice, many firms use both methods.
