About the Open Risk Manual

Open risk manual.png
The Open Risk Manual is an open online repository of information for risk management developed and maintained by Open Risk and contributing Authors. The objective is to create a comprehensive, detailed, authoritative collection of risk management resources that are easily accessible by anybody, anywhere - well, network access is required! You can read more about the concept here.

The Manual is primarily a technical resource, constructed by and for professional risk managers but open to anybody interested in understanding this important knowledge domain. The knowledge base spans in principle the entire range of risk management practice, including financial risk management and its more specialized quantitative approaches. You can read more about the types of resources included in the Manual here.
