We have updated the logo for the Open Risk Manual. The new logo aims to make more explicit both the inspiration that the Open Risk Manual project draws from the trail-blazing Wikipedia initiative (and increasing collection of associated Wikimedia projects) and the reliance on the open source ecosystem of software and tools, including the mediawiki software and the important semantic mediawiki extension. The principal stylistic element is the “double brackets” [[ ]], which is the standard way one adds connectivity between different parts of the wiki in wikitext (the mediawiki markup language).

Can’t turn around, we have come this far by faith… Open Risk is now open for public beta testing. We’ll keep the site in public beta stage for as long as needed to smooth out the rough edges. We got the first “like” on linkedin, the lucky first liker earned a lifetime membership award. Now we have to think of something suitable for the second and third, as winner takes all mentality is not in our world outlook.
A crashcourse (short course) introducing the Open Risk Academy for first time users is now available here.
A python module of analytic solutions suitable for testing credit portfolio models has been uploaded in the Open Risk github repository
Building out further the Open Risk Academy curriculum around credit concentration management, we just added a course on sector concentration.
Alpha testing did not reveal any fatal problems with the site. Many thanks to “Odysseus” for painstakingly testing everything! As of this weekend login details were sent to select volunteers with a mission to further test drive Open Risk. This limited beta testing will be ongoing for the duration of May. In the meantime, development continues… Many thanks, Open Risk
Direct feedback of your experience with the website is much appreciated, but we thought also of simplifying and streamlining the a process based on an online survey. It is available here (Now Closed) and it will be open in this form until the end of beta testing Thanks for participating! Open Risk
As of April 8 (late at night 🙂 ) the Open Risk website is uploaded and ready for alpha testing!
Just added a new course at the Open Risk Academy! The course covers name concentration risk measurement, chiefly the construction of suitable metrics based on portfolio data (Free registration is required for this course)
The Risk Manual is one of the core tools of the Open Risk Commons. We have released a first set of article entries covering a broad area of risk management topics.
The first batch of open source demos for credit portfolio calculations is now available here
This is the first Open Risk post!
