Research studies:
Developing op risk management

Our research studies support operational and non-financial risk management and measurement throughout the financial industry.

ORX members can take part in our projects for free. They also get access to all our completed reports and white papers. If your firm isn't a member of ORX, then you can still participate in our studies for a small fee.

Taking part in our projects brings lots of benefits. When you get involved in our research, you don't just get access to the results and analysis. You also get to collaborate with operational risk professionals from around the world and build a global network of peers and experts. Our participants tell us that they really value the opportunities we give them discuss ideas and challenges with ech other.
