Abstract: Trying to define a complex concept such as risk implies a thorough analysis of the causes that lead to the impact of risk on the financial system, as well as an accurate assessment of risk. Historically, risk is a ‘young’ concept and at the same time one of the few business terms that directly originated in the commercial and financial environment and did not derive from military, psychological or scientific vocabulary. The concept of risk has two meanings: “monetary hazard in business” and the “danger posed by it”.
