Risk Management

Risk management is the process of assessing, managing and mitigating losses. It exists in many forms throughout the financial world. It can involve trading in various types of derivatives and futures securities to hedge against wide swings in investment portfolios. Risk management also involves having a plan in place to get things back to normal as quickly as possible if something bad does happen.
