Welcome to Risk Management
Risk Management aims to facilitate the exchange of information and expertise across countries and across disciplines. Its purpose is to generate ideas and promote good practice for those involved in the business of managing risk. All too often assessments of risk are crudely made and the consequences of getting things wrong can be serious, including lost opportunities, loss of business, loss of reputation and even life. This journal examines both the problems and potential solutions.

Risk Management welcomes new Editor, Dr. Igor Lončarski

We are excited to announce the appointment of Igor Lončarski (University of Ljubljana, Slovenia) as the new Editor of Risk Management (RM), replacing Denis and Moira Fischbacher-Smith (University of Glasgow, UK). Dr. Lončarski also brings a new international Advisory Board to RM, built from names taken from academia and industry, who will support the journal's activities and future development. He takes his post with the aim of tightening the journal's focus and steering it into a space concentrating on the rigorous quantitative examination of topics related to financial risk and financial risk management.
Dr. Lončarski is currently Associate Professor of Finance at the University of Ljubljana (Faculty of Economics) and Program Director of a graduate program in Quantitative Finance and Actuarial Sciences. His current research interests are predominantly focused on the use of multi-factor asset pricing models, credit and liquidity risk, insider trading and financial scandals. In addition to academic service, he has acted in a consulting capacity for various corporations, agencies and organisations. Palgrave Macmillan whole-heartedly welcome him to RM!
Our new Editor welcomes suggestions for special issues on key topics and from time to time he may appoint Guest Editors to manage a special issue.

    Aims and Scope


    The aim of Risk Management (RM) is to bridge the gap between academia and industry (practice) by quantitatively addressing risk management issues of high relevance and importance to industry (practitioners), with academic rigor. The journal's target audience are practitioners, regulators, academics, as well as those predominantly interested in the quantitative perspective on the most recent issues, advances and practices in the field of risk management.

    RM is mostly focused on the topics related to financial risk management (financial risks), but is also open to publishing research related to other types of risks at the corporate, institutional, and/or regulatory level that are perceived to be important and interconnected (for example, various operational risks). In terms of institutional focus, RM welcomes research related to banks and insurance companies, asset management companies, and/or non-financial corporations.

    The journal seeks analytically rigorous and sound academic contributions in the form of original research papers, review papers and invited papers.
