Financial Products & Associated Risk Management

Risk Management for Asset Managers - Part 4


This eCourse consists of two modules. Module 1 provides a high-level overview of credit risk and counterparty credit risk (CCR) from an asset management perspective. Asset management firms frequently act as counterparties to derivatives transactions and securities financing transactions and are therefore routinely exposed to CCR. Over recent years, regulators have paid greater attention to how asset management firms measure, manage, and mitigate this risk.

Module 2 provides a high-level overview of liquidity risk and discusses the liquidity risk management process from an asset management perspective. Liquidity risk arises from the mismatch between the liquidity of fund investments and the daily redemption of fund units. To help support the stability of the financial system, asset managers must manage liquidity risk using the tools available to them.

- Define credit risk and counterparty credit risk (CCR)
