Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, traditional risk management has faced increasing exposure and challenges due to a growing number of shocks and associated risks. Many of these risks are novel and externally generated in relation to the financial system. This unprecedented surge in new risks can be attributed to global events such as the COVID-19 pandemic and the resurgence of inflation. Additionally, new evidence regarding the impact of global climate change on financial markets and real economies adds further complexity to the implementation and testing of effective risk management strategies.

Therefore, nowadays, risk managers are compelled to confront and address an unprecedented array of new risks that must be integrated into existing risk models and assessment methodologies. In this Special Issue, we welcome high-quality research papers that investigate the interaction between emerging risks, such as pandemics, demographic shifts, inflation, and climate change, and more traditional risks, including market, credit, liquidity, volatility, and model risks, among others.

Authors are kindly invited to submit original research focusing on models and methodologies designed to account for and measure the impact of these new sources of risk on existing risk models and risk management strategies.
