Interplay of insurance and financial risks is a newly emerging research topic in the interface of insurance, finance, and risk management. It is in accordance with the contemporary trends that insurers make risky investments to optimize profits and investors buy insurance against catastrophic losses, making them exposed to both insurance and financial risks. The International Workshop on Risks in Insurance and Finance, hosted by Northwest Normal University on June 7-9, 2018, offers an exciting gathering of the leading researchers in these fields. Keynote speakers are: Darinka Dentcheva (Stevens Institute of Technology), Harry Joe (University of British Columbia), and Etienne Marceau (Université Laval).
We welcome all scholars and practitioners from the world to take this opportunity to exchange their research on various aspects of risks in insurance and finance in RIF2018.
