IRMC 2008 Keyfacts: 1° EDITION 

The International Credit and Financial Risk Conference (IRMC2008) brought together 291 leading experts from Academia and Professionals for a two-day conference and ½-day professional symposium in Florence, Italy. Scholars and practitioners from more the 40 countries worldwide have discussed about risk and the company and bank implications. The mission of the conference was to provide a forum for recent advances in risk management. It has been accomplished. IRMC2008 presented the latest research from the major schools of thought and a diversity of new approaches to Risk Management: Corporate Finance, Banking and Financial Mathematics. Risk is, in fact, a multifactor concept to be addressed from different perspectives. Starting from the latest theories and tools developed in the Risk Management field, we have moved to Corporate Finance, where risk is studied both in the value maximization framework and in strategies for mitigating risk. Banking is concerned with Risk Capital and Capital Requirements. The Basel II framework played a key role in risk assessment and measurement and it affects banks’ and customers’ portfolio selection and performance. Risk can also be addressed from an actuarial and statistical perspective. A final research area has been addressed by the conference: financial accounting that is increasingly involved in the risk assessment process in these fields of studies.
