Advanced Risk Management (ARM)


Risk Management is the practice used to prevent as many losses as possible and arranging methods of payment for the rest. Risk Management is a scientific approach to the problem of dealing with the pure risks faced by individuals and businesses.  Managers have full responsibility dealing with all risks facing the organization, including both speculative and pure risks. Risk Management is not just buying insurance for a company. It also involves dealing with both insurable and uninsurable risks and the choice of the appropriate techniques for dealing with them.
