Learn powerful corporate governance and risk strategies to control both financial and non financial risks

Risk is an integral component of every forward looking transaction. Now more than ever before, it is essential to understand the multiple dimensions of risk as well as how to best manage risk to gain a competitive advantage. The Essentials of Risk Management offers a strikingly clear picture of how to construct a superior risk management program.

The Essentials of Risk Management provides you with a practical, non-ivory tower approach that is necessary to effectively implement a superior risk management program. Written by three of the leading figures with extensive practical and theoretical experience in the global risk management and corporate governance arena, this straightforward guidebook features such topics as:

  • Corporate governance, compliance and risk management
  • How to implement integrated risk management
  • Measuring, managing and hedging market, credit (retail and corporate), operational and model risk
  • The roles of board members and senior management in managing risk

As corporate scandals continue to make headlines and erode shareholder confidence, risk becomes everyone's responsibility. The Essentials of Risk Management will empower both the technical and non technical reader with the essential knowledge necessary to understand and manage risks in any corporate or economic environment.
