General Financial Risk Management Issues

The ICAP Risk Training Institute in collaboration with "Academics University of London Worldwide", for the 4th consecutive year conduct the ‘Mastering Corporate Credit’, a comprehensive professional training program of 190 live online hours for credit risk management executives. It consists of 12 modules and contains A to Z knowledge of corporate credit risk (from financial statement analysis, credit policy planning and liquidity forecasting, portfolio monitoring & management, analytics, credit insurance, collection policy, cash flow management, legal analysis credit framework and compliance with GDPR regulations).


The environment in which enterprises and investors have operated over the last years is characterized by increased and intense volatility in the prices of financial products. Factors that have contributed to this are the globalization of markets, an unprecedented free investment and speculative capital movement worldwide, and investors' growing demand for higher returns. In this new status quo, both business executives and prospective investors are asked to address a series of risks that affect various fields of financial activity.
The objective of this seminar is to provide an in-depth and practical presentation of the various types of financial risk that are faced by today's business executives within the context of their key functions, either in a company or as external investors, as well as the methods that are available to them to address those risks.
