About This Course
 

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 course, we will reveal and discuss the basics of Corporate Financial Risk Management.

Over the eight lessons, we will discuss the following:

  • What is corporate financial risk management (CFRM) and how is it different from the management of risk for financial institutions
  • Why in theory CFRM does not add value: Modigliani-Miller irrelevance theorems (1958) and why in practice CFRM adds value: real world
  • How companies manage the following risks: funding, currency, interest rate, counterparty, commodity

Gain Practical Experience with Case Studies
Using three case studies throughout the course, participants will be required to analyze market risks and create simple risk management policies.


After attending this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe how corporate RM is different from RM for financial institutions
  • Remember the main areas of CFRM and main CFRM products
  • Analyze the funding, currency, interest rate, commodity and counterparty risks in a variety of frameworks
  • Create a simple risk management policy for a number of companies

Prerequisites include basic concepts of:

  • Corporate finance: concepts of EBITDA, Net Debt, book vs. market value of equity
  • Statistics and mathematical finance: normal and log-normal distribution, variance-covariance method, Monte Carlo simulation, Value-at-Risk, efficient frontier
