The Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 also known as the Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act of 2002 and commonly called SOX or Sarbox is a United States federal law passed in response to a number of major corporate and accounting scandals.

Financial experts who are engaged by corporate bodies as risk management executives are familiar with the SOX.

While traditional risk management focuses on risks stemming from physical or legal causes (e.g. natural disasters or fires, accidents, death, and lawsuits), financial risk management, on the other hand, focuses on risks that can be managed using traded financial instruments.

To say in short, in corporate finance, risk management is a technique for measuring, monitoring and controlling the financial or operational risk on a firm's balance sheet.

The Financial and Risk Management practice of A.E. Feldman Associates maintains close and active relationships with the leading accounting and risk management consulting firms, and leading domestic and international banks and other financial institutions, including some of the hottest hedge funds in the industry.

They work with and place high-quality candidates at all levels, with an emphasis on executive management.

Finance executives who are on the look out for greener pastures can contact A.E.Feldman Associates as they have job categories that include business, financial and quantitative analysis, corporate finance and financial management, trading, compliance (including Sarbanes-Oxley), all forms of risk management, marketing, sales, and much more.
