We are avid consumers of every piece of content related to Risk Management. In fact, this was one of the key drivers when we decided to launch our Risk Management Guru blog. The whole idea is to use this platform to share and distribute any relevant Risk Management content or publication that we feel might really add value to the readers and the overall Risk community. With this in mind, we believe that it’s more than reasonable to share some of the best Risk Management blogs out there. These blogs and websites were carefully selected and we picked the ones that caught our attention.
Note that the list below is not ordered by any kind of ranking, we included these blogs/sites that we currently follow and considered them for inclusion on Risk Management Guru.
1. Risk Management Monitor
The Risk Management Monitor is the official blog of Risk Management magazine and RIMS (The Risk Management Society). This blog provides daily articles, commentary and interviews related to Risk Management and the Insurance fields. The editors of the Risk Management Monitor are Morgan O’Rourke, Caroline McDonald and Hilary Tuttle.
2. Risk Articles
We had the Risk Articles blog as a potential entry for this article and struggled a bit before deciding on keeping it. This blog has very good quality content and apparently, its content is the result of submissions which are made by its followers. It is not clear who runs nor associated contacts (we found and followed this blog on twitter by chance). However, we decided to keep following Risk Articles and see what comes next.
3. Clear Risk
ClearRisk is owned and managed by Craig Rowe, who has been in the risk and insurance industry since 1989. From his professional experience; his extensive work in industry associations such as the Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS); and as a writer and presenter throughout North America on risk management, Craig developed an approach to talking about the risk that business people relate to. There are very interesting and relevant resources included in this blog, including Risk Management whitepapers, articled and videos.

8. Glyn Holton – Know your Risk
Glyn Holton is a Risk Management coach. Having a mathematics and chemistry degree, Glyn’s communication skills are great and he has tha natural ability to translate and convey complex subjects in a way that seems simple. This is a key aspect when working witihin Risk Management since many times the Risk Managers must explain issues or even big events to non-Risk professionals (who might struggle to understand). Topics covered by his blog range from Risk Management, Risk Measurement, Corporate Governance, Cautionary Tales and a section fully dedicated to Value-at-Risk (VaR). A blog certainly worth following.
