About the report

As part of the ORX Scenarios service, financial organisations get access to the ORX Scenario Library. The library is a database of almost 1,000 scenarios that have been shared by our subscribers. They use the library to identify risks, support scenario creation and as a comparison tool.

Each year, following the annual scenario submissions, we produce a report exploring the trends and changes we can see in the ORX Scenarios library. The full version of this report is available exclusively to firms that subscribe to ORX Scenarios – if your firm subscribes to ORX Scenarios, you can read the full report here.

In addition to the report for ORX Scenarios subscribers, we've also produced a freely-available highlights report. Download the report for an overview of the key trends, themes and the top 5 scenarios in the library below.

Conduct & business disruption among top concerns for financial firms

To create this report, we asked subscribers to ORX Scenarios to share their most severe scenarios. This creates the ORX Scenario Library - a database of almost 1,000 scenarios used for risk identification and benchmarking. Our analysis shows that conduct and business disruption are high on the agenda, with over 90% of financial firms in the study sharing a conduct-related scenario and over 80% a business disruption-related scenario.

An agile operational risk framework & 'time to detect' improve risk mitigation

Our study also emphasised the importance of detecting issues quickly and responding in a timely and agile way. 'Time to detect' is a key risk driver, and the faster a financial organisation can detect and react the better the outcome.
