Conference Description:

Overview: This three hour overview of investment risk will provide the fundamentals to market, portfolio, and credit risk management that all investors, and those in financial services need to comprehend.

Regardless of job titles, investment risk management is a shared responsibility by a wide range of managers. Compared to accounting, risk is an immature discipline with a variety of risk frameworks competing to dominate. Based on the new Wiley and Sons book, Essentials of Risk Management, (January 2010), this webinar is designed to provide an introduction to an area and discipline that is changing rapidly, especially in the light of the risk management failures that have shattered so many personal and professional.

Why you should attend: To avoid repeating the painful failures in risk management that occurred during the global financial crisis of 2007 to 2009 (also known as the great recession), it is essential for today's business, IT, risk, compliance, and audit managers to understand the big picture of risk management to accept that risk management goes along with every position in business, technology, accounting, and finance. This is also true for many managers in the not-for-profit and government sectors. This three hour webinar is designed to provide an introduction to financial risk management including the major frameworks and standards in use today.
