A "work in progress"...

This page isn't nearly complete but there are already some great articles and links to check out. We intend to just add stuff as we find it. Definitely a "work in progress".

RiskMail - The only Risk Management link you'll ever need - best of all its FREE! Jim Garven has put together what must be the most comprehensive repository of Risk Management resources on the Web. From ARCHIVES to LINKS, RiskMail covers it - a real goldmine.

You can sign-up ON-LINE for the RiskMail mailing list. This is an electronic forum populated by over 2,000 folks with an abiding interest in Risk Management. This is NOT a chat group but, rather, a discussion list which is distributed to every member's E-Mailbox - everyday. You can lurk or you can jump in with a comment or question anytime you like. I suggest signing on for the DIGEST option so that you receive one large message rather than endure the clutter that can be created by 50 or 60 individual messages daily.

ABSOLUTELY FREE - and worth much more!

101 Rules of Risk Management
This old chestnut was compiled some years ago by the late Tom Hallett when he was with the late Frank B. Hall and Co. The product of a group 'brainstorm' with a number of pioneer Risk Managers, this still has real value today. While hardly 'leading-edge' (or particularly comprehensive), this is a document I often share with clients. It gives some appreciation of the scope of a practicing Risk Manager's concern. While your boss "doesn't need to know how they build a clock" when he/she asks for the time - top management can appreciate a job done SEAMLESSLY and well!

While I'd appreciate your comments on THE RULES, please post them on the RiskMail bulletin board so others might benefit from your insight.
