operational risk

Operational risk due to people, process and system failures, or from external events, is one of the most important risk categories in many financial services firms such as investment firms, insurance intermediaries and central securities depositories.

Our team of consultants assists clients in optimising their operating capabilities across all areas of their operational risk management framework, from risk appetite statements to risk and control self-assessments to incident data collection and analysis.

Operational Risk Management Framework

The framework looks at six main areas:

  1. risk governance and high level risk appetite statements
  2. expert input from risk owners in the first line of defence
  3. risk register and risk and control self-assessments
  4. risk tolerance(s), limits and Key Risk Indicators (KRIs)
  5. qualifications, modelling and report
  6. loss incidents and near misses.
