Systemic risk is the risk that developments in the financial system will disrupt financial stability and the economy. While systemic risk has been a central concern since the Credit Crisis of 2007–2009, the history of finance shows that financial crises occur frequently and threats to financial stability are constant, requiring careful monitoring and management of systemic risk. In Understanding Systemic Risk in Global Financial Markets, Aron Gottesman and Michael Leibrock discuss the core principles and dynamics of systemic risk, as well as a real-world approach to managing it.
