Never before has Risk Management been so important for banks, investment institutions, and corporations. The ACF Academy courses in this area focus on market, credit, counterparty, liquidity, and operational risk. We look at the sources of risk, how it can be measured, and what strategies need to be implemented to control these risks.
Value-at-Risk (VaR) methods are important tools, but the financial crisis of 2008 has clearly demonstrated the weakness of relying solely on VaR, flagging the need to take a more comprehensive approach.
Our risk management programs examine a wider range of methods designed to identify and measure risk more comprehensively, taking into account the possibility of risks combining to create "the perfect storm".
