An Introduction
  • Victoria L. LemieuxEmail author


This chapter provides an introduction to the papers in this volume, which are based on the workshop on Records and Information Management for Financial Risk Analysis and Management, held in Vancouver, Canada, 24–25 August 2011. The chapter contextualizes the papers presented at the workshop, and included in this volume, in relation to international initiatives to improve the transparency of global financial markets and to address information gaps identified as having contributed to or exacerbated the global financial crisis of 2007–2009. The chapter highlights the novel contributions made by each of the papers, and concludes with an examination of future research directions for an emergent field of financial records and information management.
