A history of risk solutions

Since its creation in 1997, Risk Solutions has grown in size and reputation to become an established provider of management consultancy services to the public and private sectors in the UK.

When Risk Solutions was created, risk management tended to be found in 'enclaves' such as insurance and Health & Safety, but was not applied to decision making generally. The company was created to show how the disciplines and techniques of risk management could be applied in new areas, particularly where there was considerable complexity or uncertainty.

Originally established as a growth business within AEA Technology, we became a wholly owned subsidiary in 2000 and, following a year when we were owned by Coller Capital, became an employee-owned business in 2006. Starting with a handful of clients in the nuclear and rail sectors, we have grown a strong and diverse client base in both the public and the private sectors.

Risk Solutions has SME status and is the trading name of Risksol Consulting Limited, registered in England and Wales, No. 3915179.

Most of us would rather risk catastrophe than read the directions.
