What is wrong with risk management in financial institutions? (From RWG member Martin Davies' blog)
Risk and Regulation Working Group (RWG) member Martin Davies shares his views on what he thinks are the issues in risk management that banks seem to be missing. Davies is "a risk architect focused on structured products for emerging markets and works with several tier one banks, regulators and brokerages across South East Asia". The post below first appeared on his blog and the following excerpt has been re-produced with his permission.
