Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision’s 1999 report, "Risk Management and Modelling: Current Practices and Applications", this concept has remained a topic of significant interest in the field of computation. The global financial crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic, the Russian–Ukrainian war and growing inflationary pressures, among other factors, have provided a new impetus for the development of sophisticated risk modelling techniques. This poses many challenges for analysts, investment bankers, corporate bankers, asset managers, policymakers, insurance firms and the academic community. This Special Issue aims to present the latest theoretical and empirical developments in the field of measuring, monitoring and modelling risk. We are seeking papers that explore various aspects of risk assessment and management models. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Portfolio risk modelling;
  • Counterparty and settlement risk;
  • Regulatory oversight of risk models;
  • Sovereign risk;
  • Interest rate risk;
  • Stress testing;
  • Measuring risk: probability of default and LGD;
  • Scoring models;
  • Current developments of structural and reduced-form models;
  • Rating-based models;
  • Use of big data and artificial intelligence (AI) in risk modelling,
  • New regulatory requirements;
  • New standards;
  • Market price volatility.
