Call for articles

Copy deadline: 4th December 2017

The Editor, Editorial Board and Publishers of Journal of Risk Management in Financial Institutions are seeking the submission of articles on the following subjects:

  • What challenges are presented by new regulation to banks' infrastructure, risk management, and profitability going forward? How can these challenges be best addressed? 
  • Is the rise of fintech likely to help or hinder the riskiness of banks?
  • How can banks best manage the strategic risks associated with the combination of new regulation and challenges from fintech and non-regulated bank-like entities?
  • How should risk managers mitigate the impact of an end to the low interest rate regime or the waning of central bank policy influence on financial markets?
  • Is the euro area crisis over, or does the banking system still present risks for the currency area?
  • How should financial institutions manage political tail-risks, such as a complete break-up of the European Union or the breakout of hostilities in global hotspots (eg Russia tensions, South China Sea)?
  • Could a Chinese financial crisis trigger a replay of the 1997-98 Asian Crisis and how should financial institutions prepare for this?
  • How can financial institutions (banks and insurers) best prepare for the impact of climate change (natural disaster losses, migration, defaults)?
  • How much of a challenge do low interest pose for life insurers and pension funds and how should these risks be managed?
  • Are central counterparties sufficiently resilient given their increasing role in financial systems?
  • Has the rise of indexed or passive asset management increased market and liquidity risks and how can risk managers deal with these risks?
  • Standardized risk measurement
  • Risk governance from the Board and C-Suite
  • The dangers of calibration used wrong to obtain default probabilities
