Anthony wants to hear about the new ways that firms are measuring risk to manage their trading books, and gives a look back at some of the articles you may have missed over the break.
The last two years have been about managing risk. But the topic of "risk" has been used to describe, and justify, everything from cloud computing to regulation to managing a firm's trading book. It's everywhere and everyone likes to say that they have systems to address risk.
From the examples above, I'm working on a piece looking more at the latter form of risk: What new tools are hedge funds and asset managers using to measure the risk in their books? What new ideas and philosophies is the buy side testing out today, and what place does risk serve in the investment process?
These are issues that buy-side firms have been struggling to address over the last five years as risk measurement has become exponentially more difficult due to a massive flood of data, faster trading systems and new regulatory demands. Surely, fresh ideas abound as to how firms can tackle these issues through the use of new systems and processes.
