Publisher’s Note: Journal of Risk and Financial Management

MDPI AG, Klybeckstrasse 64, CH-4057 Basel, Switzerland
J. Risk Financial Manag. 2013, 6(1), 4-5; https://doi.org/10.3390/jrfm6010004
Received: 2 October 2013 / Accepted: 2 October 2013 / Published: 3 October 2013
The Journal of Risk and Financial Management (JRFM) is published in full open access by MDPI as of 1 October 2013, when MDPI took over the ownership of the journal. So far, this journal has been published elsewhere in yearly volumes (one issue per yearly volume) since 2008, with a total of 25 papers released up to this moment [1]. Starting from 1 January 2014, the journal will be published in quarterly issues.
The areas of banking, investment finance, governance and regulation, energy finance, financial risk management and financial derivatives are all areas that will remain topical for years to come for JRFM.
As the publisher, I believe it is important to outline the difference to our two published journals Risks (ISSN 2227-7072) and the International Journal of Financial Studies (ISSN 2227-7072). While Risks is primarily aimed at the topic of risk management in the areas of insurance and actuarial sciences [2], the International Journal of Financial Studies covers the areas of corporate finance, financial markets, financial instruments and a much broader range of theories [3]. In comparison to this, JRFM will differentiate itself by having a theoretical and practical focus in the areas of credit and investment risk, including high-level statistics, time series and financial econometrics, monitoring of regulation risks, financial market regulation and investment, as well as the associated processes for risk and performance management.
