The Risk.net portfolio is world-renowned as the leading source of technical content in the financial risk management space.

We have an established portfolio of branded, integrated, annual events. These range from must-attend Congress, Summit and country/region-specific events, to industry-focused Awards and Rankings and an annual Executive Education Series. These events are narrow-cast, and form permanent entries into our audience’s diaries, enabling experts and peers to engage in community-led networking and learning.
Summits & congresses
The key to the success of our programme of integrated annual events is that they follow months of industry research and are developed in partnership with the editorial teams. The series of branded events take place across the globe, and broadly fit into two main categories. The first is a country- or region-specific, large-scale annual event, such as Risk USA, European Financial Information Summit or Asia Risk Congress. The second type of branded events are audience or topic specific, such as Quant Congress, Family Office Leadership Summit or Claims Club Summit.
Industry-led awards & rankings
We run a series of 30 glittering awards ceremonies across the globe, recognising and celebrating excellence, and showcasing the best in the industry. All our awards have a rigorous entry and judging process designed to reward those individuals and firms who have excelled in their field. The biggest event in our portfolio is the British Insurance Awards, which takes place in front of a packed audience of 2,200 at the Royal Albert Hall each July.
Our annual Rankings identify the market’s top dealers, vendors, brokers and banks across a number of categories voted for by peers and relevant market experts. Risk Institutional Rankings, Asia Risk Corporate and Institutional Rankings, FX Week Best Banks Awards, Hedge Funds Review Service Provider Rankings and Energy Risk Commodity Rankings are just some of our highly contested rankings, each receiving thousands of responses each year.
Executive Education Series
The Executive Education Series consists of a number of Central Banking residential training courses, run annually in Cambridge
and Kuala Lumpur
. They are widely recognised as the premier forums for decision makers from official sector wealth, reserves and savings funds to examine the implications of current market stresses, and to share ideas and network with peers. Thousands of central bankers have benefited from taking part in the annual Series, and stay connected with their fellow delegates from other central banks long after the event.
Digital and niche events
To cater for customers who prefer distance learning, we run an extensive schedule of webinars. The digital programme allows a wide, geographically diverse audience to keep up to date with specialist topics, technological change, regulation and compliance.
For clients interested in highly targeted niche events aimed at senior-level executives, we also run a thriving roundtable and briefings business, aimed at covering specific topics in a more relaxed environment than a conference. These events range from half-day briefings, to invitation-only events operating under Chatham House rules.
