Join Professor Steve Lindo at the RIMS office as he guides participants through four case studies. Connect with your peers and enjoy.

This is a capstone class for participants of the online series: Financial Risk Management Fundamentals II,  or anyone interested in learning more about financial risk. Lunch will be provided. 

Who Should Attend

  • Attendees of the Online Learning Series: Financial Risk Management Fundamentals II
  • Professionals seeking the ability to exercise critical judgment in situations involving financial risks, working or expecting to work in:
    • Non-financial organizations in finance or risk management roles
    • Financial institutions in finance or audit roles
    • Departments such as I/T, legal, compliance and HR which work closely with financial risk management in any type of organization
  • All participants are expected to have a good grasp of financial risk management concepts and practices

What You Will Cover

  • Each of the case studies selected for the capstone class puts participants in a situation which requires them to exercise business and technical judgment using the financial risk management concepts and practices demonstrated in the webinar sessions.
  • The first three case studies simulate real-life market, credit and liquidity risk management situations.
  • The fourth case study deconstructs the risk management culture, behavior and practices which actually occurred prior to and during the 2007-8 financial crisis, requiring participants to assess the causes and consequences of actions and attitudes which resulted in dramatically different outcomes.

Workshop Tools

  • The participant version of the relevant case study will be handed out at the beginning of each of the four sessions. After a brief overview by the instructor, participants will discuss in break-out groups the case study background and what actions they recommend.
  • Each group will then share its recommendations with the class, followed by the instructor’s explanation of the most suitable recommendations.
  • Participants will receive a copy of the instructor version of each case study at the end of the workshop.
