New issue of the Risk Governance and Control: Financial Markets & Institutions journal

The editorial team of Virtus Interpress is honoured to publish the third issue of the journal Risk Governance and Control: Financial Markets & Institutions in 2022. This issue is represented by studies from Germany, Canada, the USA, and Lebanon.

The papers published in this issue seem very timely as they relate to the diverse and new frontiers facing corporate governance, and because they provide guidance to the academy of scholarship as well as to the practical world of managers, investors, practitioners, and regulators. In particular, the papers published in this issue analyse, among others, enterprise risk management, firm performance, audit, geopolitical risks, asset prices, economics of regulation, financial markets, wealth effects, listed companies, delisting, blockchain, non-fungible tokens, digitalization, decentralization, managerial accounting, earned media, text mining, COVID-19, etc.
