Derivatives

This desk provides in-depth coverage of the derivatives markets across the interest rate, credit, foreign exchange and structured products asset classes. The over-the-counter markets are their primary target, but they also cover futures and cash as they relate to the derivatives markets (for example as collateral or alternative hedging instruments).

Regulation

The regulation desk provides topical, in-depth news and analysis on the content and implications of regulation. They focus on rules affecting risk transfer and risk management for banks and buy-side firms.

The key topics they focus on are prudential regulation, macroprudential regulation and market regulation.

Investing

This desk covers risk management, derivatives and regulation from the point of view of the buy-side. That includes asset managers, insurers, pension funds and hedge funds.

Risk management coverage focuses mainly – but not exclusively – on market risk. For insurers and pension funds this means paying special attention to interest rate risk and to how institutions manage and match their assets and liabilities. The team follows the work of asset managers and hedge funds to model, understand and manage investment risk on behalf of customers.

Risk Subscriptions: History

History of Risk.net

Risk.net was launched in 2001 – a landmark event as it meant Risk magazine’s content was available online for the first time.

In subsequent years the website grew significantly as this shift from print to digital continued apace. Other magazines from the Risk.net family hosted their content on the site, and were followed by the highly technical Risk Journals.
