July 13, 2010 - PRLog -- (Amsterdam, Netherlands) The GlobalRisk Community, launched on February 16, 2010, is a unique and innovative business network of carefully selected professionals working in the risk management industry and associated service providers. The network has over 1,000 members, making it the premier professional network for all those involved in the risk industry.

The Community’s primary mission is to foster business, networking, and educational exploration among members by providing networking opportunities, information sharing, news about the latest developments in the industry and a calendar containing industry-related events.

Membership benefits include the ability to interact with risk professionals and service providers through a range of multimedia tools including groups, blogs, videos, photos and instant messaging.  GlobalRisk Community members can add one another as friends, and also form groups around more specific interests, thus creating mini-networks based around a specific interest or project.

GlobalRisk Community’s founder, Mr. Boris Agranovich, is a globally experienced specialist with comprehensive background in consultancy, finance, risk and analysis with over 20 years of experience operating in markets throughout Europe, Russia/CIS and Israel. He is also the founder the GlobalRiskConsult, a young consultancy delivering practical risk solutions in the area of all major risks faced by financial institutions. Agranovich has been active as a Risk and Project Manager, as well as a Senior Consultant, and has advised a range of corporate and financial institutions including banks, insurance companies, trusts and hedge funds in the areas of risk management, management organization, corporate finance and IT-business alignment.
“The idea is to build a social network that serves the needs of risk managers. These include professional investors who manage pension funds, endowment funds, insurance company funds, mutual funds, hedge funds, and other funds, as well as other risk specialists focusing on Operational Risk, Political Risk, IT and Security Risk,” said Boris Agranovich.

“These people are isolated from one another, the issues are complex and regulation is complicated. Those three factors are preconditions for a successful social network. They need a place – a trusted place – where they can ask one another questions, and discuss problems. The questions will concern management of risk, searching for appropriate, skilled specialists, discussing and rating various vendors and products,  effect of regulations, opinions of economists and job-seeking and hiring. GlobalRisk Community is that place.”
