Basics of risk management
The objective of the workshop is to introduce participants to risk in general and to different types of risks. It will provide a brief overview of financial risk management practices and the role of risk management.
The programme will begin with a general introduction to risk management. We will discuss an institution’s risk appetite and different risk profiles. A review of the different types of risk will then be given: credit risk, liquidity risk, settlement risk, market risk and other risks. We will discuss the various forms of these risk categories and illustrate them using real-life case studies.
The workshop will provide participants a sound and practical understanding of financial risks and basic methods and tools for managing these risks.
