Economic and financial market dynamics pose risk—and even more so as technicals become increasingly important alongside fundamental economic data. This presentation includes a discussion of financial market risk management from an expert who worked as a risk specialist at McKinsey before founding Prestige Economics, a research firm that has consistently performed risk management consulting projects for some of the largest companies in the world.
