Financial Risk Day 2013
The Centre for Financial Risk in the Faculty of Business and Economics presented the third Macquarie Financial Risk Day - Financial Stability, Sovereign and Systemic Risk, on Friday 22 March 2013, with keynote speaker and leading risk expert Professor Edward Altman from the Stern School of Business, New York University.
Leading international and local speakers analysed the financial environment, and provided strategies for identification, measurement and management of financial risk.
The focus of the conference was not only on financial stability, but the wider implications of risk, including credit risk management, sovereign and systemic risk, and risk in the insurance industry. It also considered regulatory implications.
This one day conference provided a platform for communication between academic researchers, financial risk managers, regulators, insurance professionals, actuaries, and market practitioners. The aim was to exchange ideas and research on the management of financial risk.
