Unprecedented market conditions – financial risk management challenges and solutions
Brexit was swift but its far-reaching consequences will have long-lasting impacts on the markets. In this webinar, we took a look at the different ways in which companies felt the impact of this, and of other disruptive market conditions, such as negative interest rates and sustained volatility.
Using case studies gathered through interactions with 1800 companies worldwide, we looked at the common challenges and shared some approaches that have helped companies weather today’s unprecedented environment.
