Jason Schenker of Prestige Economics discusses nine types of corporate risk, including financial and nonfinancial risks. He explains the difference between direct risks that companies face constantly, as well as indirect risks that usually come from vendors, competitors, and counterparties. Then he covers how risks are typically resolved, either by elimination (divestiture or acquisition), transfer (hedging or insuring), offset (creating a natural hedge), or ownership (keeping the exposure). Finally, he reviews how corporations can actively measure and monitor risk by appointing dedicated risk managers, officers, and committees.
