On Day three the seminar shows how to account for regulatory, accounting, and other short-term constraints, which requires implementing risk insurance, in addition to risk diversification and risk hedging. Each afternoon of the seminar is dedicated to integrative case studies providing practical applications in both the institutional and individual money management contexts, drawing examples from asset-only and asset-liability management perspectives. »
