The Simple Rules of Risk : Revisiting the Art of Financial Risk Management Hardback
by Erik Banks
Part of the The Wiley Finance Series series
In an age where companies and financial institutions are keenly focused on managing the financial risk of their operations, the implementation of quantitative methods and models has been of tremendous help.
Tools such as VaR, credit VaR, risk adjusted returns, and scenario analyses have given institutions the means to quantify and understand their risk profiles.
However, the focus on quantitative risk management, while important, can sometimes be over emphasized at the expense of logic and experience.
At its core, the successful management of risk is still largely an "art." The "Simple Rules of Risk" takes a fresh look at the qualitative aspects of risk management.
It also considers how qualitative approaches can make optimal use of the mathematical aspects of risk management to create the most effective framework possible.
