Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The complex and volatile climate risk and the turbulent international situation have brought massive uncertainty to the global economy. On the one hand, climate policies can create additional uncertainty for the international economy through risk channels, which involve physical climate risks and transitional climate risks. On the other hand, geopolitical conflicts have led to large increases in international energy and food prices, and volatility in financial markets has increased the risk of financial fragility in some countries.

At the same time, inflation has risen sharply across economies, and the international financing environment has deteriorated, increasing debt pressures. Rising downside risks across countries have led to the emergence of further divergence in growth expectations, with economies facing extremely high levels of uncertainty regarding future growth. This new trend of change continues to spread the deep-rooted effects of the international financial crisis. How to seek development amidst uncertainty has become the theme of economic activity at present.

Against this background, it is important to determine how technology-driven innovation can better promote the healthy development of financial services and how to better manage financial risks.

Against this background, I sincerely invite scholars and graduate students from universities and research institutions, experts from financial institutions, and professionals from regulatory authorities to actively contribute papers to exchange and discuss ideas and share research results.

Theoretical, conceptual, and empirical contributions in the field of financial innovation and risk management including, but not limited to, the following topics are welcomed:

  • Channels for financial innovation to promote firm development;
  • Climate finance and risk management of energy firms;
  • Climate risks and their impacts on financial innovation;
  • Financial innovation and implications for climate risk management;
  • Financial innovation and risk management in the context of big data;
  • Green finance and financial innovation;
  • Risk management based on financial innovation;
  • Risk management of energy firms under climate policy uncertainty;
  • The impact of climate policy on corporate governance;
  • The impact of financial innovation on financial institutions.

This study aims to identify and rank the critical factors affecting risk management from the perspective of top and Lower Management in Jordanian industrial companies. Based on a rigorous literature review, critical factors affecting risk management are factors related to (1) flexibility and adaptation in the economic environment; (2) company characteristics; (3) external audit quality; (4) government rules and regulations; (5) top management and the board of directors; (6) organizational structure; (7) internal audit effectiveness; (8) trust; (9) human resources efficiency and training (10); communications (11); information technology (12); and the company’s culture. Quantitative research methods were used. A questionnaire was developed and distributed to a random sample of senior managers of industrial companies in Jordan. Kendall and Mann–Whitney tests, RII, and EFA were used to analyze the acquired data. The results show that all discussed factors have an effect on risk management, and there is no difference between top and Lower Management’s opinions regarding the ranking of the importance of those factors on risk management. This study provides an original perspective on the concept of risk management and the factors that impact it. These findings have important implications for Jordanian industrial companies’ decision makers. Companies should apply the results to their strategies and policies to reduce risks. Full article
