Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

You are required to write an essay of 3000 words commenting on the following statement.
The cycle of events leading to the GFC global financial crisis is regularly described as a series of very bad investment decisions, leading to serious losses, which in turn created a crisis in liquidity, triggering a global credit crisis.
Given that brand organizations like Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns, Meryl Lynch, who are no more or AIG who were effectively nationalised, all had technically excellent risk management systems, how to you explain the failure of risk management. What in your view was the role of financial engineering i.e. the use of collateralized debt products, contracts of difference and other credit derivative products in this disaster?
In your answer you are to consider the following issues: 1. Initially derivative products were a risk management device, so what happened? 2. The interconnectivity between operational risk, liquidity risk, credit risk and systemic risk? 3. The role of Governance and non-regulatory compliance in risk models? 4. What role will ISO31000:2009 play, if any, as the new global standard for risk management, in creating an environment of resilience in the global economy.
