Elmira Husjainova, Guang Chen & Manlu Lin

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This paper, as it’s titled, is about risk management in investment banks. To put it more broadly, we try to illustrate to what extent the traditional risk management approaches could work in the modern financial world along with the expansion of financial derivatives, tools and activities. We take the American financial market and step into the topic by the case analysis on Lehman Brothers and Goldman Sachs. Besides, we explain the other relevant concepts and players such as short selling and credit rating for further research as well as to help delineating the whole profile of the financial environment, so readers could probably know what was going on underlying the problem area.
