Description

Risk is everywhere; volatile interest rates, commodity prices, and markets. The best business leaders excel at mitigating risks, but some risks can’t be tamed while others can be. How did this happen? Why is market risk increasing and happening more frequently – despite governmental regulations? What can we do to better manage interest rate risk and commodity price changes? We review why market risks are so damaging, and what we can do about them today. If risk is an issue – this session is for you!
