Classification of Risk

  • Erik Banks
Part of the Finance and Capital Markets Series book series (FCMS)


As indicated in our risk management framework in Chapter 2, the accurate classification of risk is a vital first step in the entire risk management process. If a bank is unable correctly to identify and classify the risks it is facing, it will be unable to measure risk exposure properly. This chapter is devoted to a description of the different types of risk a bank is likely to face in the normal course of business.
