What is Equity #Portfolio #Risk Management?
If I understand your question correctly, the Equity Portfolio Risk Management should be primarily be concerned with managing the market and liquidity risk of Equity or akin linked Securities.
@GARP_Risk @CQFInstitute @icmacentre @ICMA
Other Portfolio Investment Management Risks might include =>
1.Transactional Risk
2.Price and Fair Value Modelling Risk
3.Financial Reporting Risks
4.Trading Microstructure Risks
5.Legal Risk
6.Hedging Risk using Risk Financing Methods
Investments and/or trades in the Equity Securities aka company issued shares generally falls into three-segmented and specialized market categories =>
1.Traded Securities Markets or the Listed Equity Capital Market are usually issued via an #IPO (Initial Public Offering Mode) to the stock market investors!
These are always Traded and Quoted Stocks aka Common Shares on an exchange such as the Footsie 100 Index in the UK.
2.Private Equity Market - known to investors as the Non-listed Stocks neither trade nor are quoted on any listed exchange counter of a stock market.
These shares are bought and sold privately using #OTC Over-the-Counter Markets.
3.Mutual Fund issued Equity Securities packaged in the form of investment portfolios which are referred to as collective or trust investment schemes. These legally fall into Open or Closed-End Funds which are collective investment schemes.
(I would not discuss the risks and market operations of fund linked investment strategies or securities or their structures in this answer provided to the question).
Vanilla Equity Securities that are issued by Businesses usually large joint-stock companies are generally of two types =>
1.Common Stocks (No obligation to pay a fixed rate of return to the investor in the form of dividends)
2.Preferred Stocks (will pay a fixed rate of return to the investor in the form of dividends). This kind of Equity Securities is referred to as Hybrid Securities.

Equity Securities are primarily exposed to three different financial risk factors, namely, =>
1.Market (price) Risk ->
a.Market risk is higher for listed securities or public traded stocks via an exchange, as market forces tend to instigate volatility within price-value systems.
2.Liquidity (Buy and sell-side impact cost) Risk =>
a.Liquidity risk is higher for private stocks or unlisted securities.

3.Operational Risk =>
a.Fair Value Modeling and Secondary Market Valuation risk are higher for Private Equities / Unlisted stocks.
As the Price Discovery Mechanism and transparency of financial data have disclosures and other inbuilt flaws which affects pricing transactions in Non -traded and Non-Quoted Asset Class Markets, hence, the #PE is not very different.
b. So Investment Analysts in PE Markets cannot always rely on the audited or unaudited financial information which is provided to them by companies which are not listed on an exchange.
4. Credit Risk =>

a. No credit or default risk theoretically exists in Common Shares
b. Credit risk does exist per se in Preferred Stocks because if the company fails to pay a #DIVIDEND, that is tantamount to an investment contract violation and will have legal consequences for the issuer.
5.I won't discuss Institutional Investment arrangements done via a certain type of private placement mechanism for a special class of shares or lots that are offered to the Large Ticket Investors before an #IPO takes place.

If the connotation of risk is an intertwined concept and is difficult to quantify, how does a Risk Officer look at it?
Is there any way other than using copula models to determine systemic risk with long tails or a black swan event?
@CQFInstitute @GARP_Risk @SOActuaries
I guess we are worried about Market and Credit Risks or other interrelated financial risks which can create conjoint loss given events.
Any #Gaussian distribution model will enable you to model and predict potential Operational, Liquidity and Balance sheet AL - (Asset - liability) Mismatch, Market and Credit drove losses under normal market conditions.

Why do young people leave quantitative trading 5 to 7 years in their career, and what's your advice for aspiring quantitative traders?
@CQFInstitute @RiskDotNet @icmacentre @RiskMinds
The burnout (losing interest in the job) and dropout(leaving the job) rates are stupendous.
#Quantitative Specialist Roles as they exist in the Dealing Room in the form of #Treasury, Brokerage, Fund Management, #Investment Management, #Portfolio #Asset Management, #Derivative Market Making, and various other Front -Office #Risk Roles are highly demanding jobs indeed!
Most of the traders are asked to take a mandatory leave of up to two weeks or more at financial institutions, so they can relax a bit by staying away from the financial markets.

How seriously is past volatility a fair estimate of future volatility or risk useful in financial models?
Historical Volatility based on empirical data sample observations.
Data Sample Observations can be historic baseline data for a particular asset class/exposure or simulated data derived from iterations using some historical data sets.
Another branch of data which can be used to observe future volatility is exploratory data drawn from within a sample or a population using data #visualization tools.

This technique is becoming popular as data science and machine learning advancements are taking place

Many Financial / Middle Office Risk and other Quantitative Economics/ Financial Market-led research roles interface at one level or the other across FIs.
I don't know if a bank uses Employee Rotation, to foster employee learning, training and development across the 3LOD Model?
But, most of the banks, in the Advanced Markets, to use job rotation as a tool, to disseminate professional knowledge and understanding of financial market operations, among their employees.

Did the Asian Financial Crisis (1997) had any influence in the 2008 crisis?
No, Not really!

#SOX Compliance came after ENRON and WORLD COM Frauds and Financial Reporting Failures.

You cannot mix the two events.
Asian Financial Crisis came about as a result of Unsound Macroeconomic Policies, disrespect for stabilization, excessive price competition among trading nations, lack of Asset Liability Risk Management done at the Central Banks, monopolistic market structures,
