Some common terms in Risk Management Research are as follows:

  • Financial Risk Exposure
    Financial risk exposure is the risk which a company faces as a result of possible price fluctuations in financial products such as stocks, options or bonds in which the company has invested.
  • Duration
    Duration typically relates to bonds; it is the weighted average time to maturity, based on anticipated receipt of cash flows including both interest as well as principal payments.
  • Immunization
    Immunization also relates to bonds; it is the process by which an investor eliminates risk in a bond portfolio by investing in bonds such that gains or losses from price changes due to fluctuations in interest rates are matched exactly by gains or losses from reinvestment.
  • Derivatives
    Derivatives are financial products whose value is derived from the value of other financial products – for example, options are derivatives whose value is derived from the value of the underlying stocks.
  • Futures markets
    Futures markets are markets in which futures are traded.  Futures are a type of derivative, constructed as a contract which calls for the purchase or sale – in the future – of an underlying asset or liability based on a price determined in the present.
  • Hedging
    Hedging is a type of risk management tool that allows the company to balance possible future losses with investments, typically made using derivatives such as options or futures.
  • Swaps
    In a swap, two parties (companies or financial institutions) exchange cash flow liabilities, typically because the profile of each party’s cash flows are preferred by the other party.  Swaps are also leveraged as a financial risk management tool, and, used properly, can have the effect of reducing both parties’ financial risk levels.
