The Volatility and Risk Institute will host its annual conference in-person with a Zoom simulcast on Friday, April 28, 2023. The topic is "Managing Compound Risks in a Polycrisis World."
The near-simultaneous effects of the COVID pandemic, of climate-related risks, and of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine pose significant, new challenges to risk managers and policymakers globally. When concurrent, multiple shocks hit economies, firms, financial markets and societies, the combined impact can be far greater than the sum of its parts. That’s compound risk. Because of the variety of risks present today, some observers have described our world as one of polycrisis.* This conference proposes to examine the causes of compound risk, the consequences of compound risk and the management of compound risk by risk managers and policy makers.
We propose to build on work in the risk areas that are our focus in the VRI -- climate-related, geopolitical, pandemic and macro/financial risks -- and explore whether the compounding of these risks together and/or the interplay among them requires new analytical approaches.
The conference is free and open to the public.
