Course Synopsis
The role of risk management in the asset management industry is of ever-growing importance. Large asset management firms are hiring risk management experts from trading and investment banking areas to help ensure that fund management operations understand and control market, credit, operational and reputational risks.

The importance of such risk management has been highlighted in recent years by a number of cases where internal controls have broken down, fund performances have been manipulated, and investment mandates have been ignored. The recent case in the U.K. where Unilever sued Merrill Lynch Investment Management over the under-performance of their pension fund relative to the agreed benchmark was a classic case of this.

This course is designed to provide all concerned with asset management issues from managers through to investors with the necessary exposure to the risk management concepts that are essential in the 21st century.

This course is designed to provide the course participants with the necessary exposure to the risk management concepts that are essential in the 21st century. Delegates will understand the key risk management issues that exist within asset management as the industry continues to develop. The programme will concentrate on the main asset types: equity (listed and unlisted), fixed income and property, whilst referring to other available asset types.

By the end of the course delegates will have considered the variety of risk involved in the asset management industry, together with the controls that are necessary to mitigate the risks that are being run.
