Market risk spans a wide range of risk areas, including: foreign exchange risk, interest rate risk when a bank borrows short and lends long; liquidity risk embedded in many insurance and fund products or when a corporation cannot meet its financial obligations or access the capital markets for funding; and valuation risk arising in complex trading books such as credit derivatives and commodities or in the portfolios of unlisted investments. In many cases, a market-related transaction also gives rise to a counterparty credit default risk. In each of these areas our clients face an evolving set of industry best practices and regulatory expectations.
We have experience in dealing with such risks and advising clients what is the blend of solutions best suited to their organisation. Our strength is our experience and expertise in market and counterparty risk management. We know what are the industry best practices and understand the expectations of supervisors.
Our team is comprised of highly-experienced professionals with a broad range of industry and regulatory experience in banks, investment firms, and funds.
