Why take part?

Benchmark your key operational risks

Taking part in the Operational Risk Horizon helps you identify and prioritise the most important risks facing your institution. By comparing risks to those of your peers, you'll be able to validate internal concerns and ensure full coverage of the current key operational risks and the trends driving these risks.

Survey the emerging risk horizon

Identifying new and emerging risks is a challenge consistently reported by the operational and non-financial risk professionals we speak to. This project will allow you to establish the top emerging risks facing your institution and the wider industry over the coming three years.

Focused, actionable information

Unlike other industry reports that have a wider business or banking scope, the Operational Risk Horizon focuses solely on top and emerging operational risks facing the financial services sector. 

Participants will receive:

  • The industry's top 15 current risks
  • The industry's top 15 emerging risks
  • Analysis of how the industry thinks key risks will change
  • Top risks by region

Secure data exchange

As the world's leading organisation for the exchange of anonymous data for financial institutions, we can ensure you that your data is collected securely for aggregation and analysis. 

How to participate

To take part, first please contact us to sign up. Then, in October, you'll need to complete a short survey collecting your institution's top 10 current risks and provide information about the expected trend for each risk.

You'll also need to submit your institution's top emerging risks and an indication of when each risk is expected to impact.

Forty-eight banks and insurers took part in the Operational Risk Horizon 2019, submitting a total of 444 operational risks and 308 emerging risks. We aggregated and analysed these risks, exploring how participants believed the risk landscape would change over the next few months and years.
