Security Risk Assessment


Evaluate multiple risk types and their impact on different securities.


You have just completed your third training for the new class of interns at your employer, Bank of Wealth Investment Brokers. You have now been asked to create a security risk FAQ (frequently asked questions) document.

You will need to develop a security risk FAQ document that evaluates the various sources of investment risk and the methods to mitigate and avoid risk. An FAQ will provide brief and clear information on the required subjects. Typically, only questions and answer are in an FAQ document; however, since interns will be expected to know and understand the material thoroughly, your FAQs should be more detailed and offer supporting evidence, including a reference list. Write a total of 8 to 10 FAQs.

  1. The FAQ document should give the interns enough information to understand the various sources of investment risk, risk mitigation, and risk avoidance. Be sure to use audience-specific language and tone in the document. Remember, you are writing the FAQs for the interns, but the Portfolio Manager may read it.
  2. Be creative, and make your FAQs fun, yet still clearly organized.
