Management finančnih inštitucij (ang) / Financial Institutions Management

Namen predmeta / Aims of the Course

Financial institutions are an integral part of every modern market-based economy and therefore their smooth functioning is necessary for the frictionless operating of the economy. A key common characteristic of all financial institutions is the processing of information, which enables them to identify and manage risks associated with their operations. The complexity of problems related to information processing is most heavily expressed with financial intermediaries as qualitative asset transformers, in contrast to pure brokerage financial institutions. That is also why the course predominantly focuses on studying financial intermediaries as qualitative asset transformers and the risks associated with their operations. The course aims to familiarise students with the main characteristics of financial intermediaries and to teach them how to approach the risk-identification process and risk management in reality.
