Using financial management tools and policies, you can mitigate the risks associated with four types of risk: Credit, Market, Liquidity and Operational.
Credit Risk: Credit risk refers to the potential for lenders not being able to recover funds due to borrowers’ inability or unwillingness to repay their debts. To reduce the risk, financial managers can use tools such as credit scoring models or collateral requirements.
Market Risk: Market risk is related to losses resulting from movements in security prices or interest rates that may adversely affect a company’s financial performance. To reduce the risk associated with financial instruments and investments, financial managers may use strategies such as diversification. Hedging or optimizing portfolios.
Liquidity Risk: Liquidity risk relates to a firm’s ability (or lack thereof) of meeting its short-term obligations as they become due. Cash flow forecasting techniques like scenario analysis and budgeting can help financial managers prepare for unexpected events. They also gain more flexibility in making capital investment decisions.
Operational Risk: Operational risk refers to losses resulting from inadequate processes, systems or people within a firm – including fraud or system failures. This type of risk can be mitigated by implementing strong internal control measures such as separation of duties, authorization procedures and regular monitoring to ensure that misconduct is discovered quickly.
