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. 13. 0000018510 00000 n The BCBS has introduced a single non‑model based method for the calculation 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. 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. The Committee is seeing sound operational risk governance practices adopted in an increasing number of banks. Clients, products and business practices. <]/Prev 119360/XRefStm 2694>> 0000002694 00000 n 0000017192 00000 n Moreover, the concept of operational risk appears at first glance not very innovative, since the banks did not wait for the Basel Committee to organise their activities in the form of procedures, and to develop internal audit departments to verify the correct application of these procedures. However, many banks and insurers develop and use operational risk models. Capital requirement for market risk 17 c. Capital requirement for operational risk 17 d. Capital base 18 19 - 29 a. all risk categories and that operational risk assessment is simply a vehicle for the continual improvement of controls governing the management of all other risk types. 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. 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. 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. industry is the one published by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision : ... Sub-categories of operational risk People Includes: fraud; breaches of employment law; unauthorised activity; loss or lack of key personnel; inadequate training; inadequate supervision. 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. 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. This new standard has major implications for banks’ internal loss data and how it can be used to enhance business value. The most typical example of statistical methods is the "Loss Distribution Approach" (LDA). 0000018779 00000 n 0000017653 00000 n (e.g. 0000018669 00000 n Basel 2 offers banks three capital calculation methods of increasing complexity. The required capital in the Basel II framework is then the sum of the calculated VARs. 0000016407 00000 n 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. Sub-categories of operational risk People Includes: fraud; breaches of employment law; unauthorised activity; loss or lack of key personnel; 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. The control and, if possible, the mitigation of operational risk bring us back to the risk map.

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, 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). Any IT project should therefore consider operational risk aspects. 0000015073 00000 n Under the 1988 Accord, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision recognises that the capital charge related to credit risk implicitly covers other risks. Simulations are then performed with varying risk indicators. This paper surveys the literature and publicly disclosed information on operational risk modelling and summarises the main methods employed in practice. The Basel Committee has defined standard lists for these topics (see below). 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. Moreover, these methods, which rely exclusively on historical data, do not allow to anticipate changes in the risk profile of the bank due to internal evolutions (new organisations, new activities) or external evolutions (changes in markets, competitors, emergence of new fraud techniques). 0000009804 00000 n operational risk. 0000013364 00000 n 0000018396 00000 n 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). 0000019147 00000 n 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.

The classification of risks must match the high-level view desired by the management, it must allow synthetic analyses that are transverse to all activities and as such should be established by a central risk management department. Scenario analysis involves systematic surveys with experts of each business line and risk management experts. The definition of business processes primarily corresponds to a business-oriented analysis of the activity of the bank, and not to an organisational analysis. 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. 0000016112 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. It also allows, by a retroactive effect, to tune the map. These data however require an effort of analysis and adjustment to the specific situation of the bank. 0000015281 00000 n For management purposes, risks are usually divided into categories such as operational, financial, legal compliance, information and personnel. 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. The most widely used definiti on of ‘operational risk’ used in the financial services industry is the one published by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision : How do we define ‘Operational Risk’? 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. The Basel III final rule fundamentally changes how operational risk capital (ORC) is calculated. 0000018063 00000 n trailer Operational risk Insurance operational risk taxonomy: Basel II/ Solvency II Level 1, Basel II Level 2, ORIC Level 3 Event-type category (Level 1) Definition.

Losses arising from acts inconsistent with employment, health or safety laws or agreements, from payment of personal injury claims, or from diversity / discrimination events. 0000018341 00000 n It includes more 'contemporary' risks, such as conduct, cyber and third party, while not moving completely away from the Basel Event Types. For each of the resulting distributions, we look for the mathematical model that best represents the shape of the curve. 0000004528 00000 n They gather criteria that govern the probability as well as the potential impact of a risk. Such databases, fed during several consecutive years, turn into a valuable source of information for the management of operational risks. The framework of risk management must evolve along with the bank activities: each project ("business" project or software project) should therefore include a risk aspect in order to: True operational risk management should therefore be an iterative process. The elaboration of the scenarios combines the whole set of key risk indicators of a given activity. This first evaluation should normally be slightly overestimated, because afterwards we only use scorecards to change the global amount of allocated capital. 0000005061 00000 n 0000019092 00000 n 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.

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. Capital requirement for credit risk 16 b. Basel II lists three types of risk: Credit risk Market risk Operational risk What about liquidity risk? The article “Basel II approaches for the calculation of the regulatory capital for operational risk” is devoted to the issue of operational risk of credit financial institutions. Operational risk causes are evolving periodically and banks need to develop an innovative eye to tackle them. Published on July 26, 2014 October 1, 2019 by Jawwad Farid. This approach represents a valuable complement when historical data are not sufficient to implement a purely statistical method. 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. Basel standards are currently published on the Committee's section of the website of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), as a series of pdf documents. 2.2 Basel requirements . QIS 2 - Operational Risk Loss Data – 4 May 2001 1. The Basel Committee defines the operational risk as the "risk of loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people and systems or from external events". 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. 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. Determining the business processes thus starts with the identification of the different products and services, then the actors (who may belong to different entities within the organisation) and the tasks involved in providing these products. Introduction The Committee has outlined proposals for the development of a capital charge to cover operational risk. 6 (BCBS, 2006(a)): Basic Indicator Approach (BIA) where capital is based on 15% gross income averaged over the past 3 years; The Standardised Approach (TSA) where capital is based on 12-18% gross income Therefore, it is basically a "Value at Risk" (VAR). 0000006876 00000 n It relies on a database of loss events collected within the bank, enhanced with data from external sources. 0000017016 00000 n 0000018906 00000 n Table of Contents Executive Summary.....1 Part 1: Introduction .....2 Trends in Operational Risk … 0000018203 00000 n 2. This distribution of risks can then be used to make all kinds of sophisticated computations (see below). Operational risk also includes legal risk. These questionnaires are designed by expert teams grouping risk specialists and operational people of each business line. ♦BASEL Accords. 0000003248 00000 n 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. 0000017433 00000 n So, in 2020 we created the Cause and Impact Taxonomy. In that respect, the scorecard method provides an interesting alternative, since it does not rely on actual registered loss data, but on risk indicators, which thereby support a "before the fact" vision of operational risks. They will use a rigorous framework, identical for all, but which allows them to describe their activities. The final rules came a year later than anticipated and more than three years after the first consultation on operational risk in October 2014. Finally, the questionnaires are distributed to business lines and filled out. Internal loss data (specific to the bank), External loss data (transversal databases for the whole profession), Business environment and internal control factors, Consult the documents of the BIS (Bank for International Settlements) and of the Basel committee, at, Download many articles on operational risk and risk in general at. They generally include the following functions: Organisation of Corporate and Investment Banks. It is important that risks are categorised in a way that is relevant to the needs of the organisation. Operational risk has been defined by the Basel Committee on Banking The question is how to compute this VAR. It can also support mathematical models and the body of theory on the subject is quite important (see for example gloria-mundi.com). 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). Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, 2004 . Losses due to acts of a type intended to defraud, misappropriate property or circumvent the law, by a third party. However, spectacular failures, like Baring's, have attracted the attention of regulators on the need to provide banks with prevention and coverage mechanisms against operational risks (through the allocation of dedicated capital). 920 0 obj <>stream 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. Finally, the map would not be complete if it did not come with the identification of key risk indicators: these are quantifiable elements that may increase the likelihood of the occurrence of a risk : number of transactions processed, absenteeism rate, etc. 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. 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).
