Data and risk strategies to hedge against future black swan events

In the second part of this risk technology, data strategy and innovation audiocast series sponsored by FactSet, Zoi Fletcher talks to Andrew Chin, chief risk officer at AllianceBernstein, and Sean Deutsch, director of risk strategy at FactSet, about how data and risk strategies have evolved as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Nobody could have foreseen the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our lives, economies and markets. But could the lessons learned better prepare risk managers for hedging against future black swan events?
