Risk Management

The risk in a financial investment is usually associated with its volatility, ie the fluctuation in short-term results compared to the long-term average performance.

At Compass, investment management is supported by a Risk Management System, designed in-house over the last 15 years to minimize the main risk factors.
  • Interest rate risk: the possibility that future trend interest rate trends may negatively impact the current value of an investment
  • Equity risk: the possibility that the market value of a company may decrease as a function of a general event (systemic risk) or an event specific of the individual company (idiosyncratic risk)
  • Credit Risk: the possibility that a debtor may become insolvent and default or that a changed perception of solvency may determine a lower investment value. The distinction between systemic and idiosyncratic risk also applies to credit risk
  • Currency risk: the possibility that currency trends may adversely impact the value of investments
  • Liquidity: the possibility that events may make it impossible to liquidate an investment
  • Correlation: the possibility that the correlations between different investments may suddenly change, with a negative impact on the portfolio
