The course is divided into the following three modules, each of which takes less than forty-five minutes to complete.
- Identifying Risk: emphasizes the importance of understanding and measuring risk before making decisions.
- Measuring Risk: introduces the fundamentals of quantifying market risk using the RiskGrades approach.
- Managing Risk: concludes the course with ways an investor can apply RiskGrades to manage risk.
The course has no pre-requisites except a keen interest to learn about risk. If you're already a risk expert, you may skip the fundamentals of identifying and measuring risk to go ahead and learn about the new RiskGrades suite of advanced risk measurement tools.
A course Glossary is also available online. Glossary entries are found throughout the course and are indicated by italicized, underscored text. Clicking a glossary entry reveals a separate window containing a definition of the entry.
