Operational Risk Programme (Workshop 5): Using Risk Appetite Frameworks, Statements and Limits

The ability to evaluate, design and monitor risk appetite is fundamental to a firm’s well-being and successful growth. Many firms find it difficult to clearly state their operational risk appetite, preferring to use terms such as ‘We have a low overall appetite’. This course will show you how to state your operational risk appetite both qualitatively and quantitatively, clearly and precisely on a risk-by-risk basis. The course will also review the easier-to-grasp concept of control appetite and show how control appetite is the more straightforward part of risk appetite.

Used with care, stress tests and scenarios can show a firm the sensitivities of its risk profile to exceptional events. Some scenarios can be very damaging whilst others can be relatively benign. Attendees will learn how to develop scenarios that reflect a firm’s own risk profile and apply the scenarios to that profile.
