MDP on Financial Derivatives and Risk Analysis
  • Overview

Recent years have seen phenomenal growth in financial derivative markets. Financial derivatives are used by financial institutions as well as investors, sometimes to hedge (reduce) unwanted risks, sometimes to take on additional risk motivated by views of future market movements. These instruments play an important role in the management of financial risk. These can help the market participants to improve their market and credit risks management profile. Financial derivatives also encourage financial innovation and market developments. But these instruments, if not “properly” handled, can act as weapons of mass destruction. For example - some critics say that derivatives have been responsible for near collapses or bankruptcies of Barings Bank in 1995, Long-term Capital Management in 1998, Enron in 2001, Lehman Brothers in and American International Group (AIG) in 2008. Financial derivatives can also help firm in value creation by helping in optimal allocation of resources.
