Thanks Dr. Mark!

Course Outline

Operational risk is both the oldest and the latest threat faced by financial institutions. Financial institutions have always had to protect themselves from key threats to their operations, but until relatively recently, the management of these threats focused on practical techniques for minimizing the chance of loss. Over the last decade and more, banks and other financial institutions have put significant energy into wide-ranging frameworks for managing enterprise wide operational risk and have tried to relate operational risk directly to the risk capital that they set aside to cover unexpected losses.
