Risk management in the post-crisis world provides regulators with job security, and its red meat provides financial employment opportunities for mathematical finance students. This talk gives examples of actual risk systems at 4 large banks. The material indicates the variations in risk methodology on The Street.

The majority of the talk discusses statistical measures of loss. It also touches on the perspective of international regulators. Finally, it provides background on the speaker's career prior to finance. Having an experiment fly on the Space Shuttle is the ultimate test of real-world risk management.
