CREDIT RISK MANAGEMENT
Credit points: 15
Credit risk is a new frontier in finance post the global financial crisis. Credit risk is the risk of financial loss due to a counterparty failure to perform its contractual obligations. In this subject students will examine a range of credit risk models and management techniques applied to credit sensitive portfolios. The subject addresses recent regulatory and market developments related to credit and counterparty risks and provides a hands-on approach to applying a range of strategies and models used by the industry. This subject is one of three subjects which consider how to measure and manage a firm or portfolio's exposure to market, credit and operational risk, respectively. Taken together these three subjects form the specialisation which defines the Master of Financial Analysis (Financial Risk Management) and aligns it to the curriculum of the leading globally recognised professional accreditation in financial risk management, the Financial Risk Manager (FRM) accreditation.
