About the course

Gain comprehensive insights into the modelling of operational risk capital and insurance with this interactive learning experience. 

Guided by subject matter experts, this course delves into the evolution of operational risk models, emphasising the regulatory framework with a focus on the new standardised measurement approach (SMA) and advanced measurement approach (AMA). Participants will explore advanced data analysis techniques essential for understanding and managing these risks. 

The course also explores the role of insurance, discussing its function from loss mitigation angles to the technicalities of risk transfer. A standout feature is the hands-on Microsoft Excel demonstration, equipping attendees with practical tools to apply concepts in their professional environments. 

This course ensures a solid understanding of the theoretical underpinnings and tangible skills necessary for effective risk management.
