Risk Management in Securities Trading by Bob McDowall, Research Director, TowerGroup

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Yesterday's best practices for risk management called for a report to run every night, and a management review the following day to evaluate risk exposure. During stable markets, this may have been acceptable. Not today. Not now. The world has changed. You now need up to the minute visibility of your risk exposure to survive in a volatile marketplace and meet ever-increasing regulatory requirements.


You Need To Ask Yourself!

  • Could you benefit by accelerating your risk analytics to real-time or pre-trade?
  • Are your risk analytics integrated with your trading desk or confined to a post-trade application?
  • Are you ready for the anticipated regulation changes for securities trading?
  • Do you understand the technology required to implement these changes?

To help you answer these critical questions, we invite you to be one of the first to read Tower Group Research Director, Bob McDowall's, new paper - Risk Management in Securities Trading. This thought-provoking document will help you assess the viability of your current approach to risk management and provide a roadmap to strengthening both your risk management practices and infrastructure.
