In today’s challenging financial environment, it has become critical for financial risk professionals to stay on top of new developments and best practices in risk management. Never has the role of the risk manager been as important as it is today.

Economic Capital provides an examination of the latest tools, techniques and best practices surrounding economic capital allocation within a financial institution. Led by senior practitioners and industry experts from around the globe, the course explores wide-ranging, up-to-the-minute issues in a
