Currency and interest rate fluctuations can cause considerable earnings volatility for companies and banks alike. This has been proven to have a negative impact on the value of a company, in some cases even calling its continued existence into question.

In the course of the seminar, the process of market risk management is prepared in a structured manner. This involves identifying which positions are subject to risk and analyzing how the risks affect the company. Different quantification methods are presented and the advantages and disadvantages are discussed in detail.

All this information allows well-founded decisions on risk strategy to be made and subsequently implemented. The potential significance of these risks requires careful management. Not only on the basis of legal requirements, but also within the framework of sustainable corporate management.
