Operational Risk - Beyond Regulatory Constraints

Duration: 90 Minutes
In financial institutions, operational risk has been considered as minor compared to credit risk and market risk. Moreover, Operational Risk is too difficult to grasp for bankers. Therefore operational risk management is often considered as a regulatory constraint or as an imprecise practice rather than a science, and it is often hijacked by political necessities, or can turn into insignificant exercises aimed at predicting small losses or improving efficiency without consideration for high-impact risks.

Why Should you Attend
Most large losses have been due to the occurrence of operational risks. Whilst financial institutions think they know about these types of risks, the profession has been slow to learn from other older industries dealing with catastrophic risk on a daily basis.

The banking world has not been able to avoid large debacles due to e.g. rogue trading and macroeconomic turbulences. It is now critical for banks to set up comprehensive frameworks to handle these risks at reasonable costs and to the satisfaction of regulators, without compromising everybody's drive to go forward and advance in sophistication. Banks now have to find out, formalize and implement techniques to identify, understand, measure and proactively handle operational risks. Methods for that can vary, but one has to find the best methods, as the price of failure and the rewards for success are too high: straight loss, regulatory effects, reputational loss etc. can no longer be neglected.
