Risk has always been central to finance, and managing risk depends critically on information. As evidenced by recent events, the need has never been greater for skills, systems and methodologies to manage risk information in financial markets. Authored by leading figures in risk management and analysis, this handbook serves as a unique and comprehensive reference for the technical, operational, regulatory and political issues in collecting, measuring and managing financial data. It will appeal to a wide range of audiences, from financial industry practitioners and regulators responsible for implementing risk management systems, to system integrators and software firms helping to improve such systems. Volume 1 examines the business and regulatory context that makes risk information so important. Volume 2 describes a structural and operational framework for managing a financial risk data repository.
