Course Outline

The asset management industry is a trillion-dollar business with a significant footprint in global financial markets. In the wake of the financial crisis, regulators became increasingly concerned with the dangers the industry may pose to the smooth functioning of financial markets.

In response to these regulatory concerns and associated new legislation, risk management has become an important focus for asset management firms. Key areas of concern include operational, market, liquidity, credit, and counterparty credit risk. All employees, especially those who engage with clients and perform the core functions of the asset management business, must be familiar with the types of risk their firms face and how they can help to identify, measure, and manage/mitigate risks in their day-to-day activities.
