Operational risk measurement and data

Op risk measurement & data:
Supporting effective analysis

ORX supports operational and non-financial risk professionals to collect, measure and analyse data in an effective way that’s consistent with industry best practice. 

Our risk measurement area covers a wide range of topics, including:

  • Capital methodology
  • Capital calculation
  • Capital benchmarking
  • Models
  • Correlations and dependencies
  • Stress testing (CCAR and EBA)

Our members use this information to benchmark their levels of capital and to compare their approach with their peers and the wider industry.
