Register for the Capital Benchmarking Study 2018

  • 22 May 2018

The ORX Capital Benchmarking Study is conducted annually and gives a unique insight into levels of capital held by the banking industry.

It provides the only industry-wide comparison on levels of operational risk capital in the banking industry. The annual benchmark collects a large amount of privileged data from participants on their current capital values as well as capital calculated with the new standardised approach. In return, participants receive an individual and anonymised benchmark report.

This is the only study in the industry that gives you this level of comparison. Both high-level and in-depth benchmarking are delivered, providing participants with tools to engage senior management and help respond to regulatory challenge.

This year’s study will mirror the QIS benchmark with firms submitting the operational risk tab of their QIS Basel III monitoring submission (see for the latest template). This will save participants time, ensure consistency and allow ORX to provide both a capital benchmark and a benchmark of the BCBS monitoring exercise.

Participants will receive an individual report benchmarking current and historical capital as well as the new standardised approach capital.
