The AMA Handbook of Financial Risk Management (AMACOM, 2011), written by John J. Hampton, was cited in the Award submission and selection process.
The Business Insurance Innovation Awards program recognizes leadership, inventiveness, and ingenuity in products and services designed for professional risk managers. An independent panel of judges comprising active risk management professionals selected eight organizations that will be honored for their innovative products and services during an Awards luncheon, February 29, in New York City.
Products and services that are eligible for nomination are designed for and made available to professional risk managers that address one or more of the following risk management functions: risk identification, risk assessment/analysis, risk control, and risk financing. To be considered for the 2012 Innovation Award, a product or service must have entered the marketplace in 2011.
The AMA Handbook of Financial Risk Management, published by AMACOM, the book publishing division of American Management Association, provides readers with the tools they need for dealing with the most important areas of financial decision making.
