It’s not just about the numbers! If you have relied purely on  the quantitative aspects of risk analysis, you are concentrating on the results not the cause.

To properly assess risk in a business also  requires a detailed evaluation of  the qualitative risks.

Businesses have to be able to survive and prosper in a range of economic, regulatory and political conditions. Management has to be aware of, and adapt to, social, demographic and cultural trends and changes in the industry in which it operates.

Financial analysis  has historically concentrated on numbers. But the numbers are a product of the management strategy. So, what are the factors that should be considered in the qualitative risk assessment of corporate risks, whether from a debt or equity perspective?
