Special Issue of Risks for Young Researcher in Insurance and Risk Management

Special Issue Information


Dear Colleagues,

Young minds are a wonderful source of fresh, disruptive ideas in the definition, pricing, and mitigation of risk. Unencumbered by traditional approaches to risk management and insurance, this next generation is primed to think about risk in emerging areas such as cyber-insurance and autonomous cars, and offer new insights on traditional actuarial topics. This special issue seeks to put a spotlight on the next generation of actuarial scientists, risk managers, and quants who may not have had the chance to see their work disseminated in a leading journal such as Risks.

Our goal with this Special Issue is to encourage postdoctoral fellows, graduate, and undergraduate students (with or without PhD/Fellow/Associate co-authors) to submit their work to us in the confidence that they will be reviewed with care by leading academics and practitioners in the field. We hope this experience will encourage our next generation of actuaries and risk managers to keep transforming our field for the betterment of society.
