Course: While financial institutions have focused more on credit and liquidity risk since the most recent financial crisis, operational risk remains a poorly misunderstood and neglected risk. This course is for operational risk managers, auditors, compliance officers, and regulators who need to better understand this important risk. The lecture will be supplemented with interactive discussions and case studies of recent examples of operational risk such as Standard and Poor's, JP Morgan, Citibank, and Morgan Stanley.

  • Define operational risk
  • Identify how operational risk materializes in OTC derivatives
  • Evaluate how operational risk can materialize
  • In the front, middle, and back offices of a derivatives group
  • Compare and contrast measurement approaches to operational risk
