Exploring evolving risks and challenges

Perspectives from the investment management industry

Enough time has passed since the height of the financial downturn to provide us with an opportunity to look back and review not only how risk management practices have changed in its aftermath, but also how risk management needs to evolve further to address growing and emerging risk areas.
