This unit is very dense and requires a lot of work. Financial Risk Management focuses on the models used in commercial finance for identifying and dealing with risk. The course is 11 topics, covering the entire textbook (all 20+ chapters), and everything can be tested. If you are undertaking this unit I highly recommend reading the entire textbook readings before the lecture. Even if you don't understand everything you read, it is better to have a brief idea rather than no idea. As you can imagine the course is incredibly dense. Also pay careful attention to the worked examples in the text, they are often very similar to tutorial and exam questions. The tutorial questions are very helpful when it comes to preparing for exams, sometimes an exam question is word for word the same as a tutorial question. Be prepared to put in a lot of work for this subject, it is doable, but to do well in the unit plenty of time needs to be allocated. Each individual concept is not generally that hard to understand, its the extensions and the fact that you are learning so much that makes the course hard. Lei is an excellent lecturer, he puts in a lot of effort to his lectures, the downside is unfortunately that the lecture slides (not made by Lei) are so brief that they are best used as guides for what is to be focused on rather than the main source of learning. There is a lot of talking in this unit. Best of luck

Interesting unit, properly organised, fair assessments and a fantastic lecturer in Lei...one of the best in the faculty at MQ, if not the best.

Financial Risk Management is widely used in the commercial bank, insurance and superannuation company, and managed & hedge fund. The VAR & ES method have been introduced in this course, also the financial derivatives such as option, futures and Swap were incorporated into the risk management and hedging framework to enhance students understanding.- Kevin Wang
