Why should you attend?

Operational risk is present in every activity of financial institutions. It has been formalized in regulatory from Basel II to onwards, and applied by various banks with different approaches and methods, and especially various degrees of success. Yet it has proven all too often to be a time-consuming effort not always apt to steer banks away from disasters.

Most large losses have been due to the occurrence of operational risks. Whilst financial institutions think they know about this type 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.
