0000002891 00000 n Risk management is: ‘A process of understanding and managing the risks that the entity is inevitably subject to in attempting to achieve its corporate objectives. We must first determine an acceptable level of risk, then identify the required actions to bring the "inherent" risk (existing risk before the application of preventive measures) back to this level. In doing so, they are deviating from the Basel Event Types and in the absence of a common standard, we have observed a great deal of divergence. endstream endobj 919 0 obj <>/Filter/FlateDecode/Index[179 663]/Length 45/Size 842/Type/XRef/W[1 1 1]>>stream 0000017935 00000 n KEY WORDS: operational risk, Basel regulation, banking sector, operational risk factors, operational risk events, internal processes, frauds, human errors. These data usefully complete data collected internally since historical databases by definition only register incidents that have already occurred in the bank. This distribution of risks can then be used to make all kinds of sophisticated computations (see below). 1.3.

They generally include the following functions: Organisation of Corporate and Investment Banks. 0000015073 00000 n In order to obtain a more realistic measurement, a sampling of data obtained from other institutions is added. Sound Practices for the Management and Supervision of Operational Risk Other Basel Committee Reference Documents (on the web site of the Bank for International Settlements) Basel II Compliance Risk. Simulations are then performed with varying risk indicators. Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, 2004 . And the right way of dealing with it is to educate employees to analyse and manage operational risks on a daily basis. The required capital in the Basel II framework is then the sum of the calculated VARs. 0000018961 00000 n A presentation of securities: shares, bonds, negotiable debt securities. 0000013364 00000 n 0000019257 00000 n In other words, its scope seems so wide you do not immediately perceive the practical application. Then, to each step of the process, we assign the incidents likely to disrupt its unfolding and prevent the achievement of its objectives (in terms of concrete results, or in terms of time). The impact of the finalized regimen is expected to be smaller than was assumed during the consultation period, as many of the proportional requirements and the time to implement them proved to be more relaxed than many analysts had predicted. Operational Risk (OR) is the risk of direct and indirect loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people and systems or from external events. 0000016462 00000 n However, further analysis has refined the definition considerably. The initial identification of risks results in a "theoretical" map of activities, however experience only allows first, to validate this description and second, to identify sensitive areas of activity in order to put in place appropriate controls. This changing risk profile, combined with a recent shift of focus away from capital measurement towards risk management, means that many organisations are updating their operational risk taxonomies. 4 mins read time. 0000006876 00000 n For each of those, the Value At Risk (VAR) is the maximum loss incurred with a probability of 99.9%. 0000017016 00000 n The control and, if possible, the mitigation of operational risk bring us back to the risk map.

Indeed the statistical approach described above has the drawback of considering operational incidents as completely uncorrelated, and does not take into account possible cumulative effects. 13. xref They base the estimations on events that already happened, not on events that might actually happen, among which are the most dreaded ones, those that occur rarely but with serious consequences. Under the 1988 Accord, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision recognises that the capital charge related to credit risk implicitly covers other risks. Definition of operational risk has evolved rapidly over the past few years. They will use a rigorous framework, identical for all, but which allows them to describe their activities. But the current publication format, combined with the expanded scope of the Basel Framework in recent years, make it difficult for … Operational risk is the risk of possible adverse effects on the bank’s financial result and capital caused by omissions (unintentional and intentional) in employees’ work, inadequate internal procedures and processes, inadequate management of information and other systems, as well as by unforeseeable external events. Purpose-The new regulation "The New Basel Capital Accord" which has been created in order to eliminate the shortcomings of Basel I, in 1999, Basel II, aimed to modify each bank's own criteria, regulatory activities and preferences, Market Risk. 0000003248 00000 n %PDF-1.5 %���� Then we combine both distributions, using a Monte-Carlo simulation, in order to obtain for each business line and each type of event, an aggregated curve of the loss distribution for a given time horizon. A business process is a set of coordinated tasks, which aim at providing a product or service to customers. The information collected through these processes has permitted the EBA to perform analyses and operational risk, different Pillars), on the potential impact on banking systems, and on practical implementation issues. Abstract: The final version of the New Capital Accord, which includes operational risk, was released by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision in June 2004. 842 79 risks, Basel II highlights the link between risk exposures and operational risk capital charges and proposes in particular three approaches for calculating the operational risk minimum capital charges in a continuum of increasing sophistication and risk sensitivity. 0000019553 00000 n It is important that risks are categorised in a way that is relevant to the needs of the organisation. Risk management is: ... four main categories, namely operational risk, financial risk, environmental risk and reputational risk. 0000012644 00000 n Finally, management itself may tend to minimise the impact of operational risks, as they always come with a "human error" side that may engage the liability of senior managers, all aspects they would prefer to ignore. 0000015281 00000 n Any IT project should therefore consider operational risk aspects. 0000019608 00000 n Definition of exposure classes 19 b. The implementation of control measures and action plans then results from a compromise between enforcement cost and obtained risk level. Published on July 26, 2014 October 1, 2019 by Jawwad Farid. These data allow to bring out an objective, quantified view of incurred risks, assuming of course they have been collected in a reliable and realistic way. The available tools to monitor operational risk either incorporate the qualitative approach (risk map) or the quantitative approach (database of incidents and statistical analysis of historical data), preferably both. Capital requirement for credit risk 16 b. 0000014621 00000 n Data collection of loss events relies on the previously established map to register and reference incidents.

Deloitte’s banking specialists can help you build advanced capabilities that take your operational risk management framework beyond compliance. Following this, it was clear that complementary cause and impact categories would support the understanding and use of the Event Type Taxonomy. 0000015128 00000 n The development of a method for monitoring operational risk, however, faces many internal obstacles, whether psychological or organisational: However the subject is gaining acceptance and the methodological body grows and takes shape gradually. 0000006377 00000 n The goal is to obtain from these experts an evaluation of the probability and cost of operational incidents, as identified in the analytical framework proposed by the Basel committee. Operational people fill out standardised forms, which are later captured in a database, or they directly enter data in the application. Introduction Among numerous financial risks that are inherent to the banking activity, special place belongs to operational risk. 0000019092 00000 n 0000001914 00000 n operational risk (Figure 1). One potentially radical solution is to remove operational risk as a separate risk type and to recognise that it represents the executional element of all other risk types. 0000019422 00000 n 0000017606 00000 n We focus here on the "independent" measurement methods: those that are not derived from a decision of the regulator, or more precisely those that fall in the category of "advanced methods" of the Basel committee. Globally, evaluation methods are related to 3 major families, which are not necessarily mutually exclusive as we will see below: statistical methods, scenario-based approaches and scorecard approaches. The first step in the process of monitoring operational risk is to establish a risk map. For incidents such as computer breakdowns, it is possible to consider automatic or semi-automatic data collection (an automatically created "failure report" is later on manually completed with incurred loss amounts). and which generates financial loss or damage to the image of the bank (although the latter outcome has been explicitly excluded from the definition of the Basel Committee, it still remains a major concern). 2. This paper surveys the literature and publicly disclosed information on operational risk modelling and summarises the main methods employed in practice. Losses due to acts of a type intended to defraud, misappropriate property or circumvent the law, by a third party. These publications may replace prior standards, amend existing standards or introduce new ones. 0000014967 00000 n In order to validate the choice of a mathematical model, we compare the result (frequency or loss) predicted by the model to the output of the curve built from real data: if both curves overlap, the model is considered as reliable. The Basel Committee defines operational risk in Basel II and Basel III as: The risk of loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people and systems or from external events. Losses arising from loss or damage to physical assets from natural disaster or other events. Some of the benefits of … It has set out 3 approaches of increasing sophistication to assessing the operational risk charge: the Basic Indicator Approach, the Standardised Approach and the Internal Measurement Approach (IMA). The scorecard approach provides a detailed picture of the risk profile of the financial institution. It includes more 'contemporary' risks, such as conduct, cyber and third party, while not moving completely away from the Basel Event Types. Since this evaluation is made independently of other business lines, it is not a zero-sum game: the global amount of regulatory capital may increase or decrease depending on the scores. POLICY ADVICE ON THE BASEL III REFORMS: OPERATIONAL RISK 5 information necessary to address Sections 5.3 and 5.5, the EBA launched a qualitative questionnaire and arranged an operational risk technical roundtable with banks and banking associations.

Capital base 18 19 - 29 a. 0000019312 00000 n 0000015691 00000 n As a result of the examination of this data, it is possible to establish a "score" for each business line in each category of operational risk, and thus allocate it its due proportion of regulatory capital. 0000005284 00000 n For each of the resulting distributions, we look for the mathematical model that best represents the shape of the curve. the significance of risks other than credit and market risks (Basel Committee, 2005a), such as operational risk, which had been at the heart of som e im portant banki ng problems in the past. Scenario analysis involves systematic surveys with experts of each business line and risk management experts. This map is based on an analysis of business processes, which we cross with the typology of operational risks. In particular, such an approach allows the development of quantitative tools which define measurable objectives for operational teams in terms of reduction of operational risks. A ‘Standards Based’ approach to Operational Risk Management under Basel II 1 Patrick Mc Connell Introduction In June 2004, the Basel Committee finally released the ‘Revised Framework for the International Convergence of Capital Measurement and Capital Standards’ - in effect, the definitive Basel II proposals on Operational Risk. Market liquidity is the risk that a security can not be sold at all or quickly enough to prevent a loss. 0000003437 00000 n On the other hand, in order to be realistic and useful, the analysis of business processes and of incurred risks must be entrusted to relevant operational staff. A general presentation of bonds: the different types of bonds, fixed-rate and variable-rate bonds, repayment, amortisation, A general presentation of shares: definition, typology, rights, transfer, income. 0000018906 00000 n This definition includes legal risk, but excludes strategic and reputational risk. Therefore, it is basically a "Value at Risk" (VAR). It is then time to collect the observed incidents in a historical database, which allows to evaluate the actual losses caused by operational risks (loss data). In theory, this amount of capital should correspond to the maximum loss incurred due to operational risk in the bank, with a high probability (99%) in a given time frame (for instance, one year). The elaboration of the scenarios combines the whole set of key risk indicators of a given activity. operational risk. Finally, the questionnaires are distributed to business lines and filled out. 0000010298 00000 n 0000017433 00000 n 0000018063 00000 n 0000006000 00000 n 0000010076 00000 n The reporting and monitoring tasks mean an extra burden for operational staff. 2.2 Basel requirements .

Statistical methods are somehow biased, or even dangerous, in the way they can build calculations (sometimes extremely sophisticated) on few, scattered sampling data, and based on a number of subjective assumptions. For each event, risk is assessed in terms of: Each event with possible risk must be assigned to a risk category (making future data analysis easier and faster) and, in organisational terms, to the business line where the incident would occur. Define mitigation measures to be taken in order to reduce risks. The need to measure operational risk comes from the recommendations of the Basel committee, which require banks to allocate an adequate amount of capital to cover their operational risk. 0000018724 00000 n 0000017708 00000 n 0000017289 00000 n Publications and updates by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS), including on topics related to the Basel II Framework and its implementation. 0000015805 00000 n Categories (Level 2) Activity (Level 3) Insurance activity examples. 0000019367 00000 n 0000012472 00000 n h�bbZ�����8�f�;��1�G�c4>F�h|���P� �@ 0000009804 00000 n Since there are 13 risk categories as defined in Basel 2 and questionnaires contain at least 20 questions and there may be dozens of departments involved in large financial institutions, this results in a considerable amount of data to go through. At SMFG, we classify risk into the following categories: (1) credit risk, (2) market risk, (3) liquidity risk and (4) operational risk (including processing risk and system risk). POLICY ADVICE ON THE BASEL III REFORMS: OPERATIONAL RISK 7 Introduction In accordance with the final Basel III package, the current approaches to operational risk, the Basic Indicator Approach (BIA), the Standardised Approach (TSA), Alternative Standardised Approach (ASA) and the Advanced Measurement Approach (AMA) are being replaced with a new standardised approach (BCBS SA). It also allows to involve operational staff in risk management, and therefore also constitutes a strong incentive to reduce these risks. In order to perform this evaluation, there is no other way than using a statistical method! For management purposes, risks are usually divided into categories such as operational, financial, legal compliance, information and personnel. 0000017137 00000 n To do so, we sort loss events by frequency on one hand, and by cost on the other hand, and we represent the result graphically (using histograms). 920 0 obj <>stream Basel 2 offers banks three capital calculation methods of increasing complexity. Operational risk also includes legal risk. This approach represents a valuable complement when historical data are not sufficient to implement a purely statistical method. Introduction The Committee has outlined proposals for the development of a capital charge to cover operational risk. We are a long way from the objectivity of the computations made in the framework of market risk, or even credit risk, where basic data are much less challengeable. :���+˽J:?ex-�U��5Q�i#�����Y����n�8��d�8��ML�m�� �� � ��I Losses arising from an unintentional or negligent failure to meet a professional obligation to specific clients (including fiduciary and suitability requirements), or from the nature or design of a product.

QIS 2 - Operational Risk Loss Data – 4 May 2001 1. Besides, the Basel committee took particular care to define a standard classification of business lines and operational risks. 0000003805 00000 n This changing risk profile, combined with a recent shift of focus away from capital measurement towards risk management, means that many organisations are updating their operational risk taxonomies.

This new standard has major implications for banks’ internal loss data and how it can be used to enhance business value. In addition, we provide individually tailored guidance to help Group companies identify categories of risk that need to be addressed. 0000018779 00000 n The statistical analysis of recorded loss data allows to build a graph of loss events, which range from frequent events with limited financial impact, to extremely rare events with catastrophic consequences.
