Risk.net has been through a number of changes over the past year. Editor in Chief Duncan Wood discussed recent developments in an interview with Gorkana.
Topics included the structural changes that have taken place on Risk.net, how PRs can pitch stories to the Risk.net team, as well as how Risk Journals fit into the product mix.
“The magazines no longer have their own editors and journalists. Everyone writes for Risk.net, and covers the core topics that are the biggest draw for the site’s readers – risk management, derivatives and regulation. The newsroom consists of one desk for each of those topics, with two more desks dedicated to the same topics, but with a specific focus on our buy-side and commodities sector audiences. Each desk has its own editor and a team of four to six journalists. We still see strong demand for print, but the magazines are now put together – primarily by our production team – using the material written for the Risk.net audience,” said Wood.
