For this special issue, we invite the submission of original high-quality research papers on all aspects of risks in a changing economic, financial and regulatory environment, with a special emphasis on, but not limited to, market, commodity, credit and liquidity risks. Papers related to these themes but with a more numerical or econometric emphasis are also welcome.

Papers must be analytical in nature, i.e. if theoretical, using mathematical models (e.g. propositions with proofs) and, if empirical, using statistical inference. Descriptive or case study papers will not be considered.

Suitable topics include but are not limited to:

  • Credit risk modelling, with a special emphasis on counterparty credit risk valuation, credit and debt value adjustment and wrong way risk
  • Advanced dependencies modelling in market and credit risk

  • High frequency trading: player interaction, modelling and optimal strategies
  • Hedging dependencies risks
  • Financial engineering and structured products
  • Numerical methods for market and credit risk
