Capital Modeling in Operational Risk - 3 July
Attend live in London or join the online webcast
Fitch Learning, The Corn Exchange, 55 Mark Lane, London, EC3R 7NE

The notion of operational risk is a relative newcomer to the banking industry. Conceptualized not more than 20 years ago, it is considered to be the least understood in comparison to the other major risk types and, subsequently, proven much more difficult to model.

This talk will formally define operational risk, explaining the roles that the banking supervisors and local regulators play in classifying and quantifying it. Ruben will discuss the major challenges that are experienced when trying to model it.

Ruben will also cover the various modeling techniques that are used to compute operational risk capital. These include the simple Standardized Approach (TSA), the failed Advanced Measurement Approach (AMA) and the highly controversial Standardized Measurement Approach (SMA). Lastly, an alternative approach to modeling operational risk will be presented. It is based on the method of dimensional analysis and similitude and could help get around many of the challenges posed buy the current modeling practices.
