Financial Risk Management
7.5 ECTS credits
The course focuses on methods to measure and control financial risks in corporations, banks and insurance companies. The deregulation of capital markets has resulted in increased need for such organisations to develop their internal risk management. At the same time, periods of financial crises have pointed to the need for a new type of state regulation in the form of risk management control methods such as those introduced in the course, for instance, Duration Gap Analysis, Value at Risk and Stress Testing.
