Case Study: The Importance of Risk Assessment in the Context of Investment

This case study (Junkesa et al. 2015) refers to the Banco da Amazonia. The authors investigated the risk management associated with the decision-making for the approval of a project and concluded that the bank was cautious in making such decisions. Consider if this cautiousness prevented this bank from taking on riskier projects, thus limiting its profitability. Post your findings to the Discussion Board and label the message appropriately (The link to the Discussion Board is not available in this course taster).
