Reflections on Operational Risk Management
In Reflections on Operational Risk Management, industry expert Ariane Chapelle, provides a thorough treatment of the current state of op risk management in finance. For the first time, 28 of her most important articles are combined and organised so as to guide the reader through the key topics and areas.
Divided into six sections the author examines and offers her thoughts on: The Essentials of Operational Risk and Risk Management Framework, Risk Appetite and Risk Decisions, Key Risk Indicators and Reporting, Culture and Conduct, Scenario Analysis and Tail Risks and Regulation & Capital.
The operational risk discipline is still in its infancy in the financial services industry and that is what makes it fascinating. New methods arise every day and practice is constantly evolving; this bite-size book arms the reader with a variety of topics, analogies, suggestions and ideas to stimulate awareness and understanding of operational risk in the financial industry and beyond.
This book by Ariane Chapelle is a collection of 28 columns and articles, spanning more than five years. From the fundamentals of operational risk frameworks to risk capital, they are regrouped around six themes including risk appetite, key risk indicators, risk reporting and risk culture. Each chapter addresses a hot topic of the time, such as rogue trading, or topics that are still very much discussed today, such as key risks indicators and conduct risk. More recent issues like the SMA reform and the role of regulatory capital are also explored.
The book is essential reading for op risk managers and anybody with an interest in the field.
