Operations Risk Management and Mitigation from Assessment to Implementation 2day Inperson Semin
As the size and complexity of financial institutions have increased, so too have the challenges of understanding and reducing operational risks down to truly manageable levels. Increased regulatory concern and scrutiny have also increased the cost of operational risk events in the shape of outright financial loss, regulatory fines and declining customer confidence
Operational Risk Management (ORM) is an effective tool for not only maintaining but increasing, bank profits, shareholder value, public perceptions and goodwill. Executed properly, improvements in ORM can lead to substantial financial, reputational and regulatory benefits – all this adds to increased profitability, greater financial stability and improved customer satisfaction. But to achieve these gains, financial institutions must apply a consistent and comprehensive approach to managing their operational risks. They must also understand that this approach is fundamentally different from the approaches that they use in managing market, credit and liquidity risks.
Bad Operational Risk Management has a severely negative effect on financial institutions in four very clear ways:
1.Actual operational risk losses are a direct hit to the income statement.
2.The market punishes companies, via the stock price, for operational risk failures and this loss could well exceed the actual financial loss experienced.
3.Lowered Credit Ratings, which raises the institutions cost of borrowing money in the marketplace.
Operational risk failures can vastly increase the cost of compliance by raising the level of regulatory scrutiny and complexity not to mention substantial penalties.
All too often banks have seen the need to effectively manage their operational risks as simply an issue of complying with what the bank regulator requires, rather than a disciplined process that serves to not only ensure a banks survival but which can, in the long run, contribute to that bank’s financial fortune.
