This blog is written by Trevor Levine, who has the great ability to simplify complicated risk management concepts. In his own words, he describes himself as “not a quant, an academic nor an accountant; I am just a guy with a lot of experience in risk management who enjoys using real life example to illustrate to you that management of risk is really not that complicated.”
