Therapeutic Risk Management of Medicines Excerpt :

Therapeutic risk management of medicines is an authoritative and practical guide on developing, implementing and evaluating risk management plans for medicines globally. It explains how to assess risks and benefit-risk balance, design and roll out risk minimisation and pharmacovigilance activities, and interact effectively with key stakeholders. A more systematic approach for managing the risks of medicines arose following a number of high-profile drug safety incidents and a need for better access to effective but potentially risky treatments. Regulatory requirements have evolved rapidly over the past decade. Risk management plans (RMPs) are mandatory for new medicinal products in the EU and a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) is needed for certain drugs in the US. This book is an easy-to-read resource that complements current regulatory guidance, by exploring key areas and practical implications in greater detail. It is structured into chapters encompassing a background to therapeutic risk management, strategies for developing RMPs, implementation of RMPs, and the continuing evolution of the risk management field.The topic is of critical importance not only to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, but also regulators and healthcare policymakers.Some chapters feature contributions from selected industry experts.

Strategic Risk Management Excerpt :

A fresh approach to managing risk in the most challenging market conditions Strategic Risk Management presents an innovative approach to portfolio design. Often the risk management function is a series of tripwires that are activated after the portfolio is already in trouble. Strategic Risk Management presents a framework that seeks to integrate the initial portfolio design and the risk management function. Much of the book’s research was conducted pre-COVID-19; the market selloff in March 2020 offers a unique out of sample experiment that provides evidence supportive of the approach. A crucial ingredient in this integrative design is to understand the performance of various investment strategies in stressful market conditions. The book begins by measuring the performance of various assets and strategies that purport to provide hedging abilities: such as put options and long gold positions. While put options are an extremely reliable, few would want to give up 700 basis points a year to buy this type of insurance. And even if gold does not have the type of drag that long options strategies do, gold turns out to be an unreliable hedge. We focus on two investments that historically offer impressive protection in adverse events: trend following strategies and quality-based equity strategies. We show that performance of trend following strategies is naturally linked to the payoff of a long call and long put position. This property is particularly useful in mitigating portfolio drawdowns. The book also considers operational strategies such as portfolio rebalancing. Most investors routinely rebalance their portfolios, for example, to a 60/40 equity/bond mix. However, few investors realize that a mechanical rebalancing strategy increases drawdowns and portfolio risk. The reason is simple. In extended equity sell offs, the rebalancing strategy is to buy, which increases drawdowns. Strategic Risk Management offers an intuitive solution. If the trend following signal sugges
