Risk management provides an in-depth coverage of recent innovations in the science of risk management. It includes an analysis of risk classes which have until recently been ignored by the literature, reputation and longevity risk, as well as energy and catastrophic derivatives as examples of recent advances in risk securitization. System solutions for the managing of trading, credit and general corporate risk are presented as well.
Several chapters deal with corporate governance aspects of risk management, most importantly the implementation of recently adopted minimum standards for forward-looking control in German corporations. Additional coverage includes for instance an analysis of the interaction between hedging and operating policies, the management of product liability risk from the regulator's perspective as well as empirical treatments of exposure measurement and derivatives usage. The papers included in this volume have been written in honor of Gunter Dufey, one of the pioneers in advancing risk management as a subject of academic research.
