Risk Management welcomes Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Igor Lončarski

We are excited to announce the appointment of Igor Lončarski (University of Ljubljana, Slovenia) as the new Editor of Risk Management (RM), replacing Denis and Moira Fischbacher-Smith (University of Glasgow, UK). Dr. Lončarski also brings a new international Advisory Board to RM, built from names taken from academia and industry, who will support the journal's activities and future development. He takes his post with the aim of tightening the journal's focus and steering it into a space concentrating on the rigorous quantitative examination of topics related to financial risk and financial risk management.

Dr. Lončarski is currently Associate Professor of Finance at the University of Ljubljana (Faculty of Economics) and Program Director of a graduate program in Quantitative Finance and Actuarial Sciences. His current research interests are predominantly focused on the use of multi-factor asset pricing models, credit and liquidity risk, insider trading and financial scandals. In addition to academic service, he has acted in a consulting capacity for various corporations, agencies and organisations. Palgrave Macmillan whole-heartedly welcome him to RM!

Our new Editor welcomes suggestions for special issues on key topics and from time to time he may appoint Guest Editors to manage a special issue. See the new aims and scope of the re-launched journal in our call for papers, here:
