Together with leading financial services providers and companies, KPMG supports the “ETH Risk Center,” which aims to become one of the world’s leading centers of expertise in integrative risk management. Natural, economic and social risks are becoming increasingly complex – especially for Zurich as an international financial center – and have an impact on technological and social structures.
With this in mind, KPMG is supporting the ETH Zurich Risk Initiative, of which the heart of this initiative is the ETH Risk Center. Several current ETH professorships are involved in the project, with the creation of five new chairs and the launch of pioneering research projects set up to underpin the development of potential solutions to problems of cross-disciplinary risk. A dedicated platform for dialogue will guarantee the exchange of specialist knowledge and research findings between the academic and private sectors.
