Abstract
It is generally accepted that the choice of severity distribution in loss distribution approach has a significant effect on the operational risk capital estimation. However, the usually used parametric approaches with predefined distribution assumption might be not able to fit the severity distribution accurately. The objective of this paper is to propose a nonparametric operational risk modeling approach based on Cornish-Fisher expansion. In this approach, the samples of severity are generated by Cornish-Fisher expansion and then used in the Monte Carlo simulation to sketch the annual operational loss distribution. In the experiment, the proposed approach is employed to calculate the operational risk capital charge for the overall Chinese banking. The experiment dataset is the most comprehensive operational risk dataset in China as far as we know. The results show that the proposed approach is able to use the information of high order moments and might be more effective and stable than the usually used parametric approach.

Risk aggregation considering inter-risk dependence has always been a challenge to both researchers and practitioners. The objective of this study is to formulate ways of aggregation of bank risks and comprehensively compare simple summation, variance–covariance and copula approach. Firstly, the three popular approaches are adopted to aggregate credit risk, market risk and operational risk of banks based on Austrian banking data. Then, two comparisons are mainly made. Total risks aggregated by di...

Following the Basel II Accord, with the increased focus on operational risk as an aspect distinct from credit and market risk, quantification of operational risk has been a major challenge for banks. This paper analyzes implications of the advanced measurement approach to estimate the operational risk. When modeling the severity of losses in a realistic manner, our preliminary tests indicate that classic distributions are unable to fit the entire range of operational risk data samples (collected...

This paper analyzes the implications of the advanced measurement approach (AMA) for the assessment of operational risk. Through a clinical case study on a matrix of two selected business lines and two event types of a large financial institution, we develop a procedure that addresses the major issues faced by banks in the implementation of the AMA. For each cell, we calibrate two truncated distributions functions, one for "normal" losses and the other for the "extreme" losses. In addition, we pr...

Operational risk has become an important risk component in the banking and insurance world. The availability of (few) reasonable data sets has given some authors the opportunity to analyze operational risk data and to propose different models for quantification. As proposed in Dutta and Perry [12], the parametric g-and-h distribution has recently emerged as an interesting candidate. In our paper, we discuss some fundamental properties of the g-and-h distribution and their link to extreme value t...

This article presents a new approach to determine the total risk of a financial institution. The proposed model includes components for credit, market, operational and business risk. Moreover, it includes a component for the ownership risk that stems from holding a life insurance company. The approach may be characterized as a base-level aggregation method. However, due to lack of appropriate data, some of the aggregation steps are done on the top level instead. The economic risk factors used in...

We examine the statistical properties of operational losses obtained from a large European bank using an actuarial-type framework. The simplistic assumption of a Poisson frequency distribution fails and we show that the frequency process follows closely a non-homogeneous Poisson process with a deterministic intensity of the form of a continuous cdf-like function. Further, operational losses are modeled using a variety of distributions. We address the problems of (1) reporting bias; (2) supplemen...

Abstract Due to the new regulatory guidelines known as Basel II for banking and Solvency 2 for insurance, the financial industry is looking for qualitative approaches to and quantitative models for operational risk. Whereas a full quantitative approach may never be achieved, in this paper we present some techniques from probability and statistics which no doubt will prove useful in any quantitative modelling environment. The techniques discussed are advanced peaks over threshold modelling, the c...

This paper is the first to provide a comprehensive overview of the worldwide operational loss data collection exercises (LDCEs) of internal loss, external loss, scenario analysis and business environment and internal control factors (BEICFs). Based on analyzing operational risk-related articles from 2002 to March 2017 and surveying a large amount of other information, various sources of operational risk data are classified into five types, i.e. individual banks, regulatory authorities, consortia...

Abstract Operational risk events occur in almost all processes of bank’s operation and management. Due to the dispersion and complexity of operational risk, few previous studies answer how many types of factors affect bank operational risk totally. This paper first introduces the text mining approach into operational risk domain to comprehensively identify risk factors leading to operational risk from textual risk disclosures. Based on 36573 risk factor headings from 1264 Form 10-K of 158 U.S. b...

Ensuring operational reliability of the technology-based systems processing transactions for industries such as the U.S. capital market is vital to the global economy. Within this context, monitoring operational IT risk levels (a component of enterprise risk management) across the various supply chains or “extended enterprises” (EEs) making up these highly automated sectors becomes particularly important. This paper proposes an approach for segmentation of complex industries such as the U.S. cap...

This paper aims to study the relationship between Indian ICT industries and GDP by applying Bayesian inference. Five yearly predominant indexes collected during 2000–2015, including Indian GDP, fixed phone usages, mobile phone distributions, Internet servers, and broadband suppliers, are analyzed by employing the Markov-switching model (MS model) and Bayesian vector autoregressive (BVAR) models. In addition, the Bayesian regression model is used to investigate the ICT multiplier related to India...

Abstract In loss distribution approach (LDA), the most popular approach to operational risk aggregation, modeling the dependence across business lines has been recognized, however, the research of separately modeling dependence of high-frequency low-severity and low-frequency high-severity loss events is scarce so far. In this paper, we present an approach to estimate operational risk by modeling frequency dependence for high-frequency low-severity and low-frequency high-severity loss events sep...

The dependencies between different business lines of banks have serious effects on the accuracy of operational risk estimation. Furthermore, the dependencies are far more complicated than simple linear correlation. While Pearson correlation coefficient is constructed based on the hypothesis of a linear association, the mutual information that measures all the information of a random variable contained in another random variable is a powerful alternative. Based on mutual information, the generali...
