This is the third and final installment is our series on Transition Management


Without intraday exposure charts, it would be impossible to confirm a risk management strategy.  However, when equipped with those intraday sector exposure charts, you can see how the event was handled.

The example below illustrates a clear effort to quickly reduce market and sector exposure imbalances. The dotted line represents market exposure, which became neutral to the target in the first few minutes. All other sectors were neutral by mid-day.


Below is an example that lacked a risk management strategy. The most obvious risk is market exposure represented by the dotted line. The portfolio began overexposed by $50 mil and reached $60 mil underexposed to the market at 13:30. This is risk clearly illustrated.
