Risk management describes the science of managing the risk of a firm's or individual's balance sheet. To present this science, first the relevant traded securities, including derivatives, are reviewed. Second, the relevant risks are discussed: market, credit, liquidity, and operational. Third, theoretically optimal risk management procedures are studied. Although infeasible in practice, these provide the conceptual foundation for practical risk management methodologies. Fourth, the practical risk management methodologies are presented including dynamic hedging, super- and sub- replication, and static hedging. Last, this science is applied via class projects and presentations to major risk management failures including Long Term Capital Management, the 2007 credit crisis, Barings bank, and Metallgesellschaft, among others.
