Monitoring the risk landscape

Stay on top of the operational risk landscape with ORX

Each year, we run two studies to help risk managers monitor the operational and non-financial risk landscape. The first is our annual Operational Risk Horizon study which focuses on emerging risks, while the second is Top Risk Review which looks at material risks. The studies are free for our members to take part in, or can be purchased as a package or individually by non-members.

The 2021 Risk Landscape package includes the Operational Risk Horizon 2021 report and the two Top Risk Review studies, one published in June and one in November, and costs just £1,750 saving your firm £500 across the year. Altenatively, you can choose to buy one of the 2021 reports individually for £750.
