This book provides a quantitative overview of corporate risk management for both financial and non-financial organisations. It systematically explores a range of important risks, including interest rate risk, equity risk, commodity price risk, credit risk management, counterparty risk, operational risk, liquidity risk, market risk, derivative credit risk and country risk. Chapters also provide comprehensive and accessible analysis of risk-related phenomena and the corporate strategies employed to minimise the impacts of risk in each case. Chapters begin with an explanation of basic concepts and terminology, before going on to present quantitative examples and qualitative discussion sections. The author leverages his lifetime’s experience of working in risk management to offer this clear and empirical guide for scholars and practitioners researching financial stability.
