About the Authors
  • Risk has always been central to finance, and managing risk depends critically on information. As evidenced by recent events, the need has never been greater for skills, systems and methodologies to manage risk information in financial markets. Authored by leading figures in risk management and analysis, this handbook serves as a unique and comprehensive reference for the technical, operational, regulatory and political issues in collecting, measuring and managing financial data. It is targeted towards a wide range of audiences, from financial industry practitioners and regulators responsible for implementing risk management systems, to system integrators and software firms helping to improve such systems. Volume 2 describes a structural and operational framework for managing a financial risk data repository. As experience accumulates on managing modern risk systems, the knowledge base of practical lessons grows. Understanding these issues and leading practices may mean the difference between failed and successful implementations of risk systems.

    • Meets the need for financial industry-wide data
    • Brings together contributions from a diverse group of experts from the various fields required for effective risk information management
    • Takes a holistic view of the subject across the spectrum of financial institutions
