Corporate Risk

A type of risk that takes into account the probability of a certain consequence occurring and the final impact that consequence may have on a corporation. Corporate risk assumes the project a company hopes to pursue is not a single asset but incorporated with a company’s other assets. As such, the risk of a project can be limited by disbursement through the company’s other assets. Corporate risk is calculated through the probability a project may have on the company’s earnings.
