Market Risk Module

This course is developed by Finitiatives Learning India Pvt. Ltd. (FLIP)

"Markets fall 1000 points on election results!" "Markets rise 500 points as short-sellers run for cover!" We've all seen the tremendous volatility that can occur in Financial Markets due to events like this. Market Risk is the risk of financial loss due to this volatility. It is critical for financial institutions to measure and manage this risk. This requires people with specific skill sets.

Market Risk measurement is highly quantitative in nature, and requires a strong foundation in mathematics and statistics. If you are not comfortable with numbers, this is not the place for you.
