    Explanation
    Taxation is not directly related to financial risk management. Financial risk management involves identifying, analyzing, and mitigating potential risks that could impact a company's financial performance. This includes risks related to investments, market fluctuations, credit, liquidity, and operational factors. Taxation, on the other hand, is a separate area that deals with the calculation and payment of taxes based on applicable laws and regulations. While taxation can have financial implications for a company, it is not specifically focused on managing financial risks.

    • D.

      Market risk measurement

    Correct Answer
    A. Quantitative analysis
    Explanation
    Quantitative analysis involves using tools and mathematical models to analyze data and make predictions. However, risk management, operational risk measurement and management, and market risk measurement all involve using various tools and techniques to assess and mitigate risks in different areas of business. Therefore, the option "Quantitative analysis" is the correct answer as it does not involve using tools.

The second type is funding liquidity, which refers to the ability to obtain funding or cash quickly to meet financial obligations. Understanding and managing these two types of liquidity is crucial in mitigating financial risks and maintaining financial stability.
