8:30 am - 11:00 am
The Institute of Operational Risk is pleased to invite you to a specialised workshop on the lessons learnt for Op Risk managers from the Global Financial Crisis on September 18th, from 8:30 am to 11:00 am, generously sponsored by Mitsubishi UFJ Securities International, a member of MUFG.
The title of the event is Lessons learnt for Op Risk managers from the Global Financial Crisis and identifying key emerging threats.
The Global Financial Crisis was marked by a spike in large Operational Risk losses. This interactive workshop session will be presented by Michael Grimwade and Maura O’Sullivan of Mitsubishi UFJ Securities International and will discuss the following topics:
– Understanding why large Op Risks spiked during the Global Financial Crisis:
- Which economic factors are drivers of some Operational Risks – Loss of liquidity? Falling markets? Rising credit defaults & unemployment?
- How ‘real options’ can explain these sensitivities; and
- What drove the scale of these losses – Length of time to discovery? Industry consolidation? Regulatory inflation? Depth of economic recession? Systemic industry-wide issues?
– Identifying & discussing key emerging threats, including: regulatory change & new operating models; macroeconomics; new technology; and societal & political change.
– Discussion of the lessons learnt for Op Risk Managers: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results.” In the aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis Op Risk managers need to consider what they should do differently going forwards.
