Financial Risk Modeling

What is Financial Risk Modeling?

Financial risk modeling is the process of determining how much risk (measured in volatility) is present in a particular business, investment, or series of cash flows. The process also includes assessing which independent variables make the greatest impact on dependent variables in a model. Financial analysts will attempt to model risk as a means of comparing the attractiveness of different investment opportunities.
