Validus Risk Management is an independent market risk advisory firm specialising in the management of currency, interest rate and commodity price risk.

The Validus Risk Management advisory service gives our clients access to the latest risk management technology and independent expertise at a fraction of the cost of an in-house financial risk management function. We work with corporate and private equity clients across the globe, from SMEs to multinational corporations and financial institutions, and we advise on over  $90 billion in hedging transactions annually.
