Europe’s op risk regulators to address current climate

Daily news headlines

LONDON - Europe’s top operational risk regulators – from the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Spain and other nations – are gathering in London on April 9 at OpRisk Europe 2008.

These regulators will be addressing a wide range of operational risk topics in light of recent market events, including the subprime crisis, Bear Stearns’ dramatic meltdown, and various rogue trading and market abuse scandals.

Paul Sharma, head of risk review at the UK’s Financial Services Authority, will be looking at how the discipline of operational risk is set to evolve for banks as well as insurers under Solvency II. Also from the FSA is Andrew Sheen, who will be exploring thorny home-host issues across European regulatory borders.

Maria Angeles Nieto, of the risk management models division at the Bank of Spain, Bernd Rummel, banking supervisor at Germany’s Bafin, and Martin Sprenger, head of the operational risk team at the Swiss Federal Banking Commission, are also on the programme.

Keynoting the second day of the conference is the US Federal Reserve’s Roger Cole. Cole, who is director of the division of banking supervision and regulation, will be speaking about operational risk implementation in the US – including the standardised approach and Pillar II – as well as the impact of, and lessons learned from, current market events.
