We emphasize and encourage links between academic researchers and practitioners at financial institutions to bring theoretical techniques to bear on real-world issues.

Macroeconomic Risk

Macroeconomics looks at the relationship and behaviour of the industries and government as opposed to that of individual companies; the macroeconomic risk is concerned with identifying trends, political influences and market volatility that may predict the impact these may have on financial markets and the economy.

There are a few different types of Macroeconomic Risk that affect the financial sector from economic risks that affect stocks, economic and political risks that affect governments including unemployment, inflation, prices, export/import, and market factors that can influence investment, assets and company evaluations.
