Description

This program is eligible for 12 CE credit hours as granted by CFA Society VBA Netherlands

Effective risk management involves a combination of quantitative and qualitative skills. Qualitative skills do not substitute, but instead complement and support quantitative skills. The Behavioral Risk Management course presents a framework for managing risks that relate to human psychology. In this regard, virtually every major risk management failure, if not catastrophe, in recent years has had psychological pitfalls at its root.

If you are responsible for risk management or wish to have a better awareness of risks within your organization, if you interact with risk managers, or if you are a risk manager yourself, then this program will help you better understand the psychology of risk. At its core, the psychology of risk pertains to emotions, framing, personality, and judgmental errors. Through this program, you will acquire a vocabulary and skill set for analyzing the psychological dimension of risk management issues, thereby improving your effectiveness and the efficacy of your organization.
