CNoR.jpg    ACT 'Risk Advisories' - 08/01/17


The Changing Nature of Risk work group focuses on reviewing the topics that will impact risk – P2P, the Sharing Economy, Drones, Machine Learning, Blockchain, and others – and determining responses needed by our industry.  

 
This group group has begun creating ‘Risk Advisories’; short, focused advisories on each topic - defining the trend, importance, implications, economic impacts, recommended actions, and resources for more information.  These Advisories are intended to drive strategic discussions among all industry leaders, resulting in accelerated distribution channel movement forward. 

The 'Risk Advisories' are located on the 'Changing Nature of Risk' web page - Check out our latest Advisory on the Internet of Things!
