Companies around the world are exposed to a variety of financial risks, including interest rate, inflation, currency, credit, commodity and M&A-related risks. The Global Financial Crisis and improved risk management capabilities have brought about fundamental changes in how these risks are viewed, identified and managed by top corporations.
However, modern risk management practices remain seldom discussed and little understood both by companies that need to do risk management and by banks that should provide risk management services, especially in emerging markets. This presents a major competitive disadvantage in the post-crisis world, where companies with controlled exposures to volatile financial markets enjoy lower earnings volatility, a lower risk of financial distress, and a generally more stable operating environment.
