Today, I would like to take a broader perspective and explore the implications of changes in the financial industry as a whole for the nature of financial risk and for how to deal with it.
These are not easy questions and they often require skills that transcend disciplinary boundaries. The stakes are high. In line with trends in the development of markets, the process has advanced furthest in the integration of market risk and credit risk; it is at best incipient for other categories of risk, not least for liquidity risk.
By contrast, counterparty risk in a market transaction depends fundamentally on market conditions, such as liquidity and volatility, which are well beyond the control of the two parties to the contract.
This endogeneity is natural - it is part of the physiology of the financial system. What are the implications of these structural trends for the transformation of financial risk? First, companies have increasingly focused on the management of risk on a firm-wide basis.
For instance, derivative instruments that originally targeted market risk resulted, as a by-product, in a pyramiding of counterparty risk that required separate management. As regards measurement, stress tests can of course help here too: An analysis of MIS data could reveal how to better utilize internal and external information.
This is an area where prudential authorities have taken the lead, by encouraging greater risk disclosure by regulated firms. Information Technology The most encompassing interpretation of IT would be anything related to computers or computing technology.
I have argued that the trends in the financial system have brought about a transformation in the nature of financial risk. In a recent speech to the International Conference of Banking Supervisors, I have discussed the key ingredients of the debate and offered a sketch of a possible solution.
For example, IT could be a particular interface that helps users input data into a corporate MIS operation. Efforts to strengthen the macroprudential perspective should be pursued further, but they may well need to await the development of additional analytical tools to help measurement and calibration.
Not surprisingly, addressing financial instability has become a major policy concern, both nationally and internationally. Think, for instance, of the extraordinary expansion of derivatives, including more recently credit derivatives, and of asset-backed securities. Likewise, the impact of the rational retrenchment of individual investors and market-makers in reaction to spikes in market volatility or losses can trigger a self-propelling spiral of selling, market price declines and evaporating liquidity.
The two main types of risk small business owners are exposed to are financial risk and business risk. One is the relaxation of aggregate financing constraints associated with financial liberalisation. As you are well aware, substantial progress has been made here.
By the same token, the old analysis of risk that was structured around traditional business lines has become increasingly irrelevant. As regards risk management, the challenge is even more daunting.
At first sight this may appear counterintuitive. An excessively prescriptive approach is an invitation for regulatory arbitrage and for practices that respect the letter of the standards but violate their spirit.
These mechanisms were quite prominent, for instance, in the market turbulence following the Russian default and the LTCM crisis of The theme of this Colloquium is competition in financial services. Management Information System In terms of business decision-making, an information system is a set of data, computing devices and management methods that supports routine company operations.
For example, lending booms can boost economic activity and asset prices to unsustainable levels, sowing the seeds of subsequent instability. This transformation requires adapting risk management both at the level of individual firms and in the financial system as a whole.
MIS is a specific subset of IS.
It is important that these differences be reconciled. This practice should be encouraged and developed further. Implications for market participants The structural changes I have just discussed have had a profound impact on the way market participants measure and manage financial risk.AIS Chapter 7.
