    Seems quite handy - going to start using it next month as we're investing quite a lot in it. This will define for us what to do in this space and solve a real problem (rather than chasing shiny objects).

    So far I have only had time to browse it very superficially, but form that it looks very comprehensive and at the same time practical. As soon as I find time I will do a short item on it on my literature pages and point risk management professionals in your direction. Have a great day, and all the best!!
