Research studies:
Driving op risk management forward

Research is a core part of ORX. Our aim is to push understanding of operational risk practice, theory and strategy forward. To help us do this, we carry out a broad range of research covering the most pressing issues facing the industry today.

While only our members get full access to the results of our studies, we also make many of findings freely available. This helps us achieve our mission of progressing operational and non-financial risk management throughout the financial sector.

Taking part in our studies is free for ORX members. If your firm isn't a member of ORX, then you can still participate in our studies for a small fee. Have a look at our current projects to see what you could get involved in.
