The ultimate goal of every investor is to maximise profits on the financial markets and minimise losses in the event of financial stress. In this module, we present an overview of financial crises and look at the different classifications and a discussion of some of the major financial crises that have occurred.

We also present an overview of the concepts of systemic risk, financial interconnectedness, recent developments in the space of critical transitions and early warning signals which are intended to warn investors and policy makers beforehand, potential looming crises. The module ends with a discussion on the ethical implications and moral benefits of financial crises.
