Risks to the consumer in a credit relationship
Each financial product carries certain risks. It is not possible to recognise and describe in advance all the risks associated with an individual financial product. Each financial product is unique and carries specific risks which sometimes appear for the first time and may be unexpected. Below we present an overview of the key, recognised risks associated with financial products, with a particular emphasis on currency and interest rate risk. We also explain certain concepts important for the understanding of these risks and some of the possibilities for the protection against such risks.
