Financial failures observed during global financial crisis have again underlined the importance of effective risk management. In this article, the author analyzes the best instrument, namely self discipline, official discipline and market discipline, for the effective risk management. In the light of literature review and lessons of firm/system wide financial failures, we also analyze degree of efficieny of disciplinary methods.
