NEW YORK, March 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Wall Street Journal today announced plans to launch 'Risk & Compliance Journal,' a news and information service aimed at serving the needs of C-suite executives and boards of directors charged with navigating the array of corporate, financial and reputational risks facing companies today. Set to launch in the spring, the service will provide coverage of a wide span of governance, risk and compliance issues, including analysis of the significance of laws and regulations, the risks inherent in global expansion, and practical guidance on how companies and boards can protect their corporate reputations.
The service will be overseen by Nicholas Elliott (@NickElliottDJ), a veteran editor who has been with Dow Jones for more than 20 years and currently serves as editor of The Wall Street Journal's Corruption Currents blog. Risk & Compliance Journal will have its own dedicated staff, as well as draw upon the wider editorial resources of The Wall Street Journal.
"Risk and compliance is an important area of coverage and a critical avenue of growth for us," said Gerard Baker, Editor-in-Chief of The Wall Street Journal "The pressure on companies to address these issues—regulation, governance, bribery and money laundering—has never been greater. Our aim is to create a definitive source for staying on top of the fast-paced regulatory and strategic change in this area."
Risk & Compliance Journal will be the latest in a series of dedicated content pages from Dow Jones that also includes CFO Journal, CIO Journal, Wall Street Journal Wealth Management, and DJ FX Trader. The service will be available to WSJ subscribers and complements Dow Jones Risk & Compliance, a suite of enterprise screening and diligence tools used by over 2,000 corporations globally to manage risk around money laundering, corruption, fraud and sanctions compliance.
Deloitte LLP has an exclusive arrangement to provide a sponsored stream of content written and compiled by Deloitte LLP, including topical digests, research, insight, and analyses, covering the growing number of risk challenges C-suite executives and board members must manage.
"We look forward to this opportunity to contribute to the discussion on the many risk challenges executives and boards wrestle with in today's environment—from how to incorporate risk into corporate strategy to managing risk for both value creation and protection," said Henry Ristuccia, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP, and Global Leader, Governance, Risk and Compliance Services, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited.
Deloitte LLP also has a similar exclusive arrangement to sponsor a regular stream of content for CIO Journal, which launched in 2012, and CFO Journal, which launched in 2011.
The Wall Street Journal news department is not involved in the creation of the content stream sponsored by Deloitte LLP.
