This comprehensive guide is designed to help businesses and financial institutions operating in emerging markets incorporate modern risk management techniques into their decisionmaking. It looks at market, credit, operational and legal risks and proposes solutions to risk management issues as they apply specifically to emerging markets.

Based on a value-at-risk approach, the book examines the role of senior management in setting risk guidelines, the use of information systems for monitoring and communicating risk, and the tools for measuring and managing risk. It also outlines how to the implement an objective and systematic risk management program that allows for effective control and evaluation of operations. Drawing on practical methods used by successful risk managers throughout the world, the book provides specific guidance on establishing a modern risk management framework and on efficient approaches to increasing the profitability of risk management activities in emerging market settings.

Originally published in Spanish, Financial Risk Management is already widely used throughout Latin America. But with its emphasis on emerging markets, the book is an invaluable resource for financial risk professionals as well as for all those interested in both the theory and practice of risk management.
