The article summarizes two of the themes raised in the Siemens Financial Services Inc. (SFS) paper, both of which represent current trends in company risk management, and which are also critical to credit availability, rating and credit pricing. A recent survey carried out for Siemens Financial Services included a question about the most important aspects or problems related to corporate financing. Financial risk management is of crucial importance to business success and to obtaining economically priced lines of credit. This not only applies to financial risk in the narrow sense, such as interest rate, currency and credit risk.
