Measuring & Managing - Investment Risk - CPD Training Course


Seminar Overview


Observation number one: Not all Risk is bad. Too much risk aversion will likely result in missing out on upside opportunities. Risk management involves defining what level of risk is deemed acceptable & then striving to target those appropriate levels. However, Risk cannot be managed easily unless it can be measured. There is no silver bullet out there for this task, but a range of tools to be employed where appropriate.


The following topics will be covered

  • Volatility – Statistical probability and the dispersion of returns
  • Do we live in a ‘Normal’ world?
  • Fat Tails in Finance & Black Swans explained
  • Case Study – Volatility in practice across the Mutual Fund Universe
  • A tool from the Sell Side of the Market - Value at Risk – will it work?
  • Tools from the Buy Side of the Market – Sharpe & Information Ratios – Risk adjusted performance measurement
  • Portfolio Optimisation and rebalancing - A tool to minimise Portfolio risk


Who should attend?

  • Graduates aiming for a career in Investment Management
  • New joiners in the Financial Markets studying for a professional qualification (CISI, IMC)
  • Professional Investment Advisers
  • Financial Journalists
  • New joiners in the Buy Side Risk function
  • FinTech professionals




A CPD certificate will be provided to all attendees, which may be considered appropriate by your company for the accrual of CPD hours.
