Operational Risk for Actuaries

Event Type
European Actuarial Academy (EAA)

3rd and 4th March

Start Time: 9.00am (GMT)

Finish Time: 11.00am (GMT)


Announcement from the European Actuarial Academy organiser: Operational risk is the risk of loss, arising from inadequate or failed internal processes, people and systems or from external events. That is the definition of operational risk for regulatory purposes. Operational risk management is usually part of ERM and actuaries are typically not involved in these processes. That is often because of poor data related to rare events and some lack of methodologies. The goal of this web session is to provide actuaries with tools and ideas how to better involve in operational risk management and how to use existing actuarial toolboxes to improve valuation of operational risk.

The web session is intended as an introduction for actuaries and risk managers wishing to learn more about operational risk management. It is designed for those who will be directly involved in operational risk management or interested in this topic in a more general way. The web session presumes only basic actuarial knowledge.
