Currency and interest rate fluctuations can cause significant earnings volatility for companies and banks alike. This demonstrably negatively affects the value of the company, and in some cases even its continued existence is called into question.

In the course of the seminar, the process of market risk management is structured in a structured way. It identifies which positions are risky and analyzes how the risks affect the company. Different quantification methods are presented and the advantages and disadvantages discussed in detail. All this information makes it possible to make informed risk strategy decisions and subsequently implement them.

The potential importance of these risks requires careful management. Not only because of legal requirements, but also as part of sustainable corporate management (keyword: compliance).
