Online access to all Risk Journals content

Risk Journals deliver peer-reviewed research covering financial risk topics such as credit risk, operational risk, investment strategies, commodities, infrastructures, derivatives, regulation and more.

These papers provide original and innovative analysis you may not find anywhere else, ensuring those studying the ever-changing complexity of risk management are kept up-to-date.

Risk Books content

Risk Books cover a wide base of subjects within finance ranging from derivatives, hedge funds, quant analysis, credit, regulatory issues and operational risk through to the energy, insurance and currency markets.

Although some subject areas are viewed as niche, the appeal and audience for these titles are broad. The content, though very popular amongst academics, is equally consumed by, and extremely useful for, practitioners, investors and corporate users.

Associations with GARP and the SOA reflects the fact that Risk Books content is not only cutting edge but also illuminating; helping to shape thinking and learning around esoteric subjects.

All Risk Books are written and edited by leading professionals and academics. Indeed, it has been the enduring goal over 20 years of publishing to establish relationships with writers and editors of the highest calibre, and produce books that make a genuine difference.

‘Cutting Edge’ articles

Risk.net regularly publishes peer-reviewed quant finance research papers. These sit under the ‘Cutting Edge‘ section of the site.

Cutting Edge provides technical papers across a range of topics including market and credit risk measurement and management, the pricing and hedging of derivatives, theoretical modelling of markets and portfolios and the modelling of energy and commodity markets.

These papers provide original analysis you may not find anywhere else with the aim of evaluating key hypotheses among the financial management fields.

Articles go through a stringent process to make sure they meet the high standards required to be published on our site.

News and analysis articles

Risk.net delivers unmatched coverage of complex issues that are ignored or under-reported elsewhere.

We regularly break stories, but are not trying to compete in the provision of real-time news. Instead, we look at topics in detail, assess the implications, speak with practitioners, regulators and other stakeholders, and write detailed, analytical pieces about them.

Apps from the Risk.net family

You can also have access to the Risk.net app and the Risk Journals app.

The Risk.net app updates throughout the day and provides users with a variety of exclusive features:

  • Scrapbook feature: found on the main menu, this allows you to save articles and read them offline
  • Magazine issues: read and download Risk and Asia Risk magazine issues
  • Operational Risk: access and read dedicated operational risk content on the go
