What we do


Research into operational risk management and measurement is a core part of what we do. We carry out research projects each year on a number of important themes.

ORX Loss Data

We are the only global loss sharing service for the banking and insurance sectors, providing a platform for the anonymised and secure exchange of high-quality data.

ORX News

We recently launched the new ORX News website. Find out more about the new site and the benefits of subscribing to ORX News – a leading provider of publicly reported operational risk loss data.


ORX is leading the way in setting reporting standards for operational risk. Our standards for banking and insurance are both publicly available.

ORX Scenarios

This programme gives its Subscribers data, tools and standards to help them identify, assess and validate scenarios.

ORX Forums

Each year, we run a growing number of events aimed at bringing individuals together, and enabling them to collaborate and share ideas.
