Investment risk management
Recent market boom-busts have happened, and will continue to happen partly because apparently reputable institutions oversell risky or worthless investments.
Following Enron, Worldcom, Equitable Life and other scandals it is apparent that the new investment methodology is required to protect investors. Rather than relying on market reputation, investors need to be able to look past the sales hype to discover the true situation.
Operational risk management and the forensic investigation of investment provide the groundwork for such a methodology.
