Articles and Links

A "work in progress"...

This page isn’t nearly complete but there are already some great articles and links to check out. We intend to just add stuff as we find it. Definitely a “work in progress”.

101 Rules of Risk Management

This old chestnut was compiled some years ago by the late Tom Hallett when he was with the late Frank B. Hall and Co. The product of a group ‘brainstorm’ with a number of pioneer Risk Managers, this still has real value today. While hardly ‘leading-edge’ (or particularly comprehensive), this is a document I often share with clients. It gives some appreciation of the scope of a practicing Risk Manager’s concern. While your boss “doesn’t need to know how they build a clock” when he/she asks for the time – top management can appreciate a job done SEAMLESSLY and well!

While I’d appreciate your comments on THE RULES, please post them on the RiskMail bulletin board so others might benefit from your insight.
