WSJ to launch Risk & Compliance Journal
New York—The Wall Street Journal announced it will launch Risk & Compliance Journal, a news service covering governance, risk and compliance issues.
The service, scheduled to debut in the spring, will target C-level executives and board directors. It is the latest in a series of dedicated content services from Dow Jones that also includes CFO Journal, CIO Journal, DJ FX Trader and Wall Street Journal Wealth Management. It will be available to WSJ subscribers and complements Dow Jones Risk & Compliance, a suite of enterprise screening and diligence tools, the company said.
Risk & Compliance Journal will have its own dedicated staff and also draw on the wider editorial resources of The Wall Street Journal.
“Risk and compliance is an important area of coverage and a critical avenue of growth for us,” said Gerard Baker, editor in chief of The Wall Street Journal, in a statement. “The pressure on companies to address these issues—regulation, governance, bribery and money laundering—has never been greater. Our aim is to create a definitive source for staying on top of the fast-paced regulatory and strategic change in this area.”
Deloitte has an exclusive arrangement to provide a sponsored stream of content for Risk & Compliance Journal, similar to the arrangement the company has to sponsor content for CIO Journal, which rolled out last year, and CFO Journal, which debuted in 2011.
