Managing Operational Risk: New Insights and Lessons Learnt
Managing Operational Risk: New Insights and Lessons Learnt addresses the root causes of the unprecedented operational risk losses suffered after the financial crisis; the new and emerging operational risk threats; and the lessons to be learnt for those working within the sphere of operational risk. Through the use of case studies and analysis of industry trends, Michael Grimwade examines how we can make operational risk management more effective.
The book is structured around the following three questions:
- Why did banks suffer such large operational risk losses during the financial crisis?
- What is going to cause banks to suffer large operational risk losses again in the future?
- What should operational risk managers do differently?
The recent financial crisis has led to unprecedented levels of operational risk losses. In Managing Operational Risk: New Insights and Lessons Learnt, Michael Grimwade, author and head of operational risk for MUFG’s International Securities Businesses, argues that these operational risk losses are readily explicable and could be repeated in the near future.
Managing Operational Risk: New Insights and Lessons Learnt examines the ways in which market and credit risks were transformed into operational risk losses, and how the current actions of both central banks and regulators may be unwittingly sowing the seeds for a new wave of losses.
