Open Risk Commons

Open Risk as part of its mission actively supports the formation of a Community, building and adopting free and open risk management tools. The aim is to benefit and enhance financial risk management across the board.

The Community is built around the core efforts covering different community needs and the central role is played by the Open Risk Manual

The Open Risk Manual

The Open Risk Manual is an expert documentation database developed with the same software powering Wikipedia, but with a content creation model that ensures the quality assurance and consistency offered by more structured expert review. The Manual aims to collect and support the development of the knowledge base of the risk management community.

  • Articles are created, edited, updated by Open Risk or registered contributors under the Creative Commons License
  • Open Risk promotes no-nonsense, informed, transparent contributions and (where relevant) retains a moderator role
