Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS) has released the findings of the 2008 Risk Management Compensation Survey, the fifth iteration of the not-for-profit organization’s annual survey. RIMS, which represents more than 4,100 organizations in 48 countries, opted to include compensation information for chief risk officers for the first time this year, as well as various other senior risk management levels.

According to the survey, the average base salary for a chief risk officer/vice president of a U.S.-based company hovers around $170,683.
