    PRiM Risk Newsletter No 24 - Risk in Investment Funds

    In comparison with the banking sector, risk management in the fund industry has traditionally had a relatively narrow focus on fund performance, centred on portfolio management. The acceptance of higher risk instruments such as derivatives in UCITS III and the far-reaching impact of the financial crisis on fund markets have resulted in a wider focus on risk management in investment funds.

    PRiM Risk Newsletter No 21 - Risk Management in Emerging Markets

    Most of the risk management topics covered in past issues of the PRiM Risk Newsletter have been presented independent of any specific location. This issue is somewhat different in that regard, because it focuses on risk management in emerging markets and the unique challenges that those markets face.
