About Operational Risk Modeling

Operational risk modeling helps in measuring, monitoring and mitigating the risk of direct or indirect loss caused from inadequate or failed internal processes or from external events. With the growing sophistication of financial institutions, mitigating operational risk has become a prime concern for institutions as well as regulatory bodies. To mitigate operational risk, a comprehensive approach is required that asks for a strong fundamental knowledge of statistics and current regulatory literature, both of which is covered in the course.

Risk Consultant

This course demystified the modeling of the most difficult risk, the Operational Risk. Amazing faculty with relevant experience.
Operational R

For implementation of Basel in our bank lot of IT software were installed to calculate different kind of risk, it was very difficult to understand the sequence of events. With this course using Excel and R the modeling of frequency, severity, loss, VAR and arriving at capital estimates became manageable
