Risk Management Talk at Greenwich Library

On September 6th 2012 I gave a talk at the Greenwich Library, “How to Think About Risk Management”, co-sponsored by the CFA Society of Stamford. I talked about my views on risk management, focusing on two topics:

  • Arguing for risk management as management – managing people, process, institutions
  • An introduction to the quantitative side – how to think about risk and uncertainty, and what do volatility and VaR (value at risk) really mean?

The talk is based on my book, Quantitative Risk Management. Here are the slides from the presentation, and for those wanting more detail here are the speaker’s notes.
