Risk management is no longer merely a passive cost-center in financial and non-financial organizations. Regulators, shareholders, executive management and investors look to risk managers for advice on risk budgeting. Since the financial crisis erupted in 2007, risk managers are expected more than before to make a thorough internal assessment of their organization's risk management frameworks and advise the board of directors and investors on their findings. Through its Professional Risk Manager (PRM) examination and qualification, the Professional Risk Managers' International Association (PRMIA) offers an outstanding tool of education for risk managers at all institutions. To be awarded the PRM designation, candidates must successfully pass four exams. The Professional Risk Manager (PRM) Exam Handbook – Exam 1 covers the Learning Outcome Statements (LOSs) issued by PRMIA for Exam 1. The topics dealt with in this exam are: finance theory, financial instruments and financial markets. Due to the limited number of study manuals available for the PRM exams, candidates have previously had to rely on a wide range of resources on finance and financial instruments to learn the information they need. This approach is time-consuming and does not leave the candidate feeling confident about their readiness for the exams. The Professional Risk Manager (PRM) Exam Handbook is designed to address this problem and help PRM candidates prepare for the the PRM exams. The intention is to remove the need to refer to many different reference works and to make the obscure concepts comprehensible. The Handbook has been designed to cover everything you will need to know for PRM Exam 1. Information is presented in a clear, organized way, and demand very little previous knowledge of risk and finance. PRM candidates coming from a non-financial background should face no difficulty using this book as a reference to the intricacies of financial markets and risk management.

This groundbreaking new book answers an essential question: why is it that a fund client selects, or an investment consultant recommends, one asset manager over another when the two are, on paper at least, very similar? Also, why is it that some asset managers maintain their mandates during difficult periods in the cycle and others don't, even though their performances are identical? Authors Herman Brodie and Klaus Harnack investigated the drivers of these selection decisions and uncovered that so-called 'soft' factors play the primary role - even more so for consultants than for end-clients. They also discovered that these soft factors are essentially the means clients use to judge an asset manager's benevolent intentions, one of the two dimensions of the universal human evaluation more commonly known as trust. Backed by compelling data and research from multiple disciplines, The Trust Mandate breaks open the science of trust for asset managers, revealing the systematic steps clients take in their search for evidence of good intentions - the essential, but often missing, component in business relationships. It also shows how trusted managers are able to win more clients, keep them longer, merit good recommendations, allowed to take more risks, and justify higher fees. The clients of trusted managers enjoy reduced anxiety, earn higher long-run returns, and avoid costly and pointless transitions from firm to firm. So high-trust relationships are a genuine win-win situation. Yet the task of initiating and nurturing them falls squarely on the service provider. Asset managers must learn to convey their good intentions. The Trust Mandate shows why - and how - in unprecedented detail.
