    ALRiM Risk Newsletter Number 32 - Counterparty Risk

    Although in the past counterparty risk was only conceived as a small part of credit risk without a separate identity, today it is one of the most controversial topics in financial risk management. Much of this interest can be attributed to the experience of the Financial Crisis of 2008 and the Lehman Brothers scandal, but discussions on counterparty risk have been extended to include collateral management and other aspects that are taking on an existence of their own. This issue of the ALRiM Risk Newsletter, therefore, focuses on counterparty risk as well as different aspects of collateral and collateral management.

    The interviews in this issue are somewhat different from the ones in the past. To cover counterparty risk from different perspectives, we have conducted two interviews - one on counterparty risk in the banking and securities market, the other in the context of investment funds.

    ALRiM Risk Newsletter No 31 - People Risk

    Welcome to our latest newsletter, published under its new name, the ALRiM Risk Newsletter !

    The PRiM Risk Newsletter number 8 from December 2006 was dedicated to people risk. Because people risk still remains an area of great concern, we felt that it would be worthwhile to revisit the topic six years later. A significant issue that was identified in the 2006 Newsletter and echoed in a conference on people risk that PRiM and the Personnel Officers Group (POG) organised around that time was a shortage of focus on people risk as a separately defined topic. Risk managers often consider people risk a human resources issue, while human resource managers may see it as belonging to the areas covered by risk management. This situation has often resulted in a failure to identify people issues as a source of increased risk.
