Abstract

Based on the most recent annual report of thyssenkrupp we look for various features of modern risk management. It appears that there could be challenges to have a full view of low probability and high impact risks, to be able to perceive concentration as well as wrong way risks and to capture risk dependencies.

Also, we perform a multiple linear regression to identify key drivers for EBITDA. We identify two and find the transparency on their potential adverse impacts to be limited in the current reporting. Especially in light of the strategy to become a diversified industrial group it might be worthwhile to expand the mentioned capabilities - or reveal more of them in the annual reporting.

Keywords: Corporate Risk Management, Commodity Risk Management, Hedging, Thyssenkrupp
