If you’re involved in the financial management of your organization, you know that every decision you make involves taking careful consideration of what factors are at stake, and protecting your bottom line.In short . . . managing risk.

Proper risk management entails knowing when to go after opportunities that can open up new realms of profit for your business . . . but if you fail to account for the possible, often hidden, pitfalls that can accompany each decision, the consequences could be tremendous.

Filled with strategies, principles, and measurement techniques, this book provides you with the tools you need for dealing with the most important areas of financial decision making. You’ll learn how to reduce a complex business environment into workable concepts and models, and quantify an enormous, constantly changing playing field in a way that allows you to understand and predict possible outcomes and determine how your organization should proceed in any situation.

Providing both explanations and practical applications, the book shows you how to:

• Understand the interrelationship of risk and return

• Manage risks in capital investment decisions

• Categorize financial risks

• Analyze operating risks

• Reduce risks from cash flow and budget exposures

• Determine the value of common stock

• Optimize debt in the capital structure

This comprehensive guide gives you the essential tools and insights you need for managing risk in financial statements, profits, cash flows, capital investments, value of the firm, and capital structure management. The book provides definitions of key terms, examines all the major ideas and concepts necessary to proper financial risk management, and provides step-by-step directions for determining risk and applying proven techniques to achieve favorable outcomes in any given situation. Packed with examples and “how-to” analyses, each chapter contains financial models you can use to make sense of the numbers and provide a framework for making smart decisions.
