In this panel discussion, leading risk practitioners from the global financial system will join LSE academics to take stock of the risk management challenges experienced in 2022 and lessons learnt going into 2023. Did we frame and approach risk in the right manner? What has worked and what has not in 2022? What is it that truly surprised us? What are some of the open questions that we are still grappling with, and academia can help with?
