The book has a secondary function as a reference text for risk professionals interested in a clear and concise treatment of concepts and techniques used on practice. Different courses can be devised based on different chapters of the book: market risk, credit risk, operational risk, risk-measurement and aggregation concepts, risk-management techniques for financial econometricians. Material from various chapters could be used as interesting examples for statistics courses on subjects like multivariate analysis, time series analysis and generalized linear modelling.
