Introduction to Corporate Financial Risk Management

Thought Leadership Webinar: When talking about risk management, we mostly talk about the risk within financial institutions: banks, asset managers, insurers, etc. However, non-financial companies, which form a much bigger part of the economy, are also exposed to financial risks and devote significant resources to risk management. In this webinar, we will cover the basics of Corporate Financial Risk Management.
