Focusing on the contemporary issues, the journal gives priority to the latest theoretical and empirical research on cryptocurrencies, blockchain technologies, regulatory technology (RegTech), financial technology (FinTech), insurance technology (InsurTech), financial risks from climate change, and the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks. The journal particularly seeks to publish articles of practical relevance to banks, investment firms and insurers, as well as of policy relevance to regulators and central banks that go beyond the obvious and beyond a narrative description of financial of risks.
