The Operational Risk Awards honour excellence in op risk management, regulation and service provision.
The awards are divided up into practitioner and vendor categories. Practitioner categories, which include op risk management awards for banks, asset managers and insurers, will be judged by a panel of senior editors and writers. The journalists will closely scrutinise and verify the information contained in these entries, including by undertaking follow-up interviews with the firms involved.
Vendor categories, which include awards for law firms, consultancies and technology providers, will be judged by a carefully selected panel of op risk practitioners and other industry experts.
Judges will consider the extent to which each entrant has demonstrated excellence and met the criteria laid out for the category or categories entered. While judges will analyse firms’ entries in detail, judges are allowed to make their final decisions based on all the information at their disposal and not solely the information contained in the entry.
Meanwhile, the award for Paper of the Year is judged by the editorial board of the Journal of Operational Risk, who will recognise an outstanding contribution to the journal in the previous year; and the inaugural Book of the Year award will be judged according to the same rationale by the editor of Risk Books.
Finally, all entrants are invited to nominate candidates for the Industry Initiative of the Year and Outstanding Achievement of the Year awards.
This year’s winners will be recognised at our annual awards evening on Tuesday June 13 at the Marriott Grosvenor Hotel in London.
Interviews with all winners will feature in a special awards supplement, to be published in July.
