Written for today’s global risk managers, general counsel, board members and executives, the FINEX Observer shares our insights into noteworthy trends, developing concerns and, most importantly, opportunities that are hidden in the financial and executive risks of today’s global business environment.

A central theme for this inaugural edition is the evolving risk of individual accountability. Regulators, investors and customers around the world are trending toward holding individuals — as opposed to corporate entities — liable for perceived wrongdoing. An understanding of this exposure and how one’s risk transfer/insurance program may respond is, therefore, essential, as is recognizing and managing other very particular and developing risks, such as transactional-related exposures and cyber-related threats.
