Operational Risk Horizon 2020

  • 11 July 2019

Now in its third year, the Operational Risk Horizon lets participants benchmark their top current risks and identify emerging risk trends. The Operational Risk Horizon 2020 provides insights into the industry's view of today’s operational risk profile, and how it may change over the next three years.

Download the summary of last year's horizon report to see what type of information and analysis will be in the 2020 edition. Firms that take part will be able to compare their current risks to the rest of the industry and find out which risks should be on their radar for 2020 and beyond.

We've now begun the data collection and analysis for our Operational Risk Horizon project. This means that, unfortunately, you can no longer sign up to take part. But do keep an eye for the operational and non-financial risk trends which will be published in the new year.

What's included in the study?

Benchmark key operational risks

The Operational Risk Horizon helps to identify and prioritise the most important operational risks and non-financial risks facing your institution. By comparing risks to those of their peers, financial organisations can 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 risk professionals we speak to. This project allows firms to establish the top emerging risks facing them 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 and non-financial 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 that the data is collected securely for aggregation and analysis.

Last year's top five risk lists

ORX Operational Risk Horizon 2019 top fives tables

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.

All current members of ORX can read the full Operational Risk Horizon 2019 report on our member's website.
