Understanding the Next 10 Years of Corporate Risk


Lloyd’s of London
1 Lime Street


Modern corporations face more risk today than those a generation ago, with globalisation, economic interconnectivity, climate change and other complex drivers transforming the global risk landscape. 

Therefore, companies are increasingly focusing on managing risks to their business. Regulatory pressures and shareholder scrutiny require businesses to be more explicit about the risks that they face. The Centre for Risk Studies at Cambridge Judge Business School, University of Cambridge, is leading research to better identify, quantify, and manage corporate risk. 

In the first Cambridge Risk Briefing, the Centre will reflect on catastrophes in the 20th Century and question what can be learned from history to better understand the future. The briefing will examine precedents of corporate distress and failure, and explore methods to assess and quantify corporate risk holistically, to provide companies with the understanding required to navigate and prosper through the next 10 years of risk.
