10 Sigma Risk LLC

Helping to Manage Market Volatility

Home

10 Sigma Risk LLC provides consulting services to risk managers and data analysts in the financial industry. Please contact me at jyoon@10sigmarisk.com for a free consultation. The company's name, 10 sigma risk, stands for our focus on extreme market events. If we were to call a normal market volatility level a 1-sigma event, then a 10-sigma event signifies a 10 times greater volatility level, or an extreme event. The market crash of October 2008 following Lehman Brother's bankruptcy was an extreme event. The October 1987 U.S. stock market crash in S&P500 futures was another extreme event.
