Integrative Risk Management

Issue #6

Integrative risk management starts with the premise that no measure of exposure can be taken in isolation. It is a view that is well established in a corporate context, with stress being placed on a more holistic understanding of risk management. This integrative approach is only beginning to make initial headway into the strategic management of risks at a societal level.

Integrative risk management is a key focus of the Centre. It was the subject of a major publication, the Risk Dialogue Series, in May 2010. The Centre is further acting as the liaison point between Swiss Re and the Integrative Risk Management Initiative at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zürich. Swiss Re is sponsoring a Chair within the Initiative.
