A Sneak Peak Into Robert Mark's Operational Risk Management



“The Essentials of Risk Management had already been recognized as the leading reference on the topic. This fresh update, which includes lessons learned from the financial crisis of 2007-2009, I an even more compelling voice of authority and is accessible to a broad range of managers in the banking industry, the regulatory community, and beyond.”
Darrell Duffie, Dean Witter Distinguished Professor of Finance, Stanford

 “Tragically, the first edition of The Essentials of Risk Management came out in 2006, too late to have had a substantive impact on the pending crisis. Fortunately, the second edition, coming out five years after the crisis, while providing similar content, is also deeply informed by the lessons of the credit crisis. This edition is highly recommended to students and practitioners seeking a broad practical overview of financial risk management.”
Ben Golub, Chief Risk Officer, BlackRock, Inc.

“The Essentials of Risk Management is an important reference for the industry. It covers all of the important risk issues, which should be of concern to business leaders and risk managers, in a clear, comprehensive and accessible manner. It is always my ‘first stop’ in answering questions, and I use it as an overall road map for improving the risk management in my company.”
Thomas C. Wilson, Chief Risk Officer, Allianz SE

“This second edition of this popular book is being released at an opportune time. With their rich academic and practical backgrounds, Crouhy, Galai, and Mark knit together the diverse concepts and practical developments in a comprehensive and comprehensible volume that would be useful for students at business schools, academics, and practitioners. This book is a must for the shelves of both academics and risk managers.”
Marti G. Subrahmanyam, Charles E. Merrill Professor of Finance and Economics, Stern School of Business, New York University

Course Outline

The focus of this course is on the integration of quantitative and qualitative assessments to identify and estimate operational risk exposures. Academics and regulators have been critical of approaches to quantify operational risk capital for financial institutions. Nonetheless, a granular focus on improving the measurement of operational risk and upgrading the operational infrastructure is increasingly becoming more important in organisations (e.g. analysing and upgrading the processes that lead to operational risk events).
