FIN-382 Risk Management
Risk Management presents an overview of the measurement and management of risks in modern financial institutions. The course begins with a review of topics, such as the efficient frontier and capital asset pricing model (CAPM), that serve as a basis for understanding risk-return analysis. The course then moves on to examine various tools used in measuring and analyzing risks, placing emphasis on value at risk (VaR) approaches. This course also discusses off-balance-sheet items such as loan commitments and securitization and examines the role of regulators in controlling such risks. As a foundation for understanding financial crises, the course describes the U.S. mortgage market, asset-backed securities (ABSs) and collateralized debt obligations (CDOs). Finally, the course evaluates the benefits of scenario analysis and stress testing.
