FINB 611-Investment and Portfolio Analysis (3 Crs.)


Risk management has become a field of major importance in finance. The major financial risks are liquidity risk, interest rate risk, credit risk, and market risk. The innovation came originally from the capital markets where risks are traded using “derivatives”. A second impulse was triggered in the banking industry, when the management of financial risks of banking institutions became a major issue because of the strong pressure of regulatory bodies. Today, risk management in the financial industry has become the center of attention by all. It is a core central function for globally reaching financial organizations, banks, funds, insurance companies, because of the stringent rules imposed worldwide.
