Financial Risk Management, a unit provided by Open Universities Australia in association with Swinburne University, provides you with a comprehensive understanding of financial risks posed to a business entity, and how to mitigate them. You will analyse interest rates, currency swaps, and learn basic hedging strategies to ensure a business’s assets are spread evenly.
To begin with, you will gain an introduction to risk management before considering option prices, strategies, and hedging opportunities. Following this, you will examine interest rates and foreign currency swaps, before exploring future forecasting and interest rate derivatives. Finally, you will explore financial risk management procedures and policies, and how to conduct business ethically.
Ultimately, Financial Risk Management provides you with a sophisticated understanding of the various strategies and procedures involved in the management of financial risk, and how they can protect a business. Once you have learned these essential processes, you will be able to apply these risk mitigation strategies to real-world business contexts.
