Of all the different types of risks (credit, market, operational, sovereign, legal, reputational, foreign exchange), operational risk is arguably the fulcrum upon which the causation and effective management of the other types of risks largely depend. It is the reason why the causes of operational risk (people, processes, systems, and external events) are also described as the mechanisms or assets for effective risk management.

The Managing Risks in Financial Institutions delivered by a faculty of experts is designed to provide a training that will enhance the knowledge and practice of sustainable and effective risk management among board/senior management and risk managers/officers of all financial institutions in Nigeria.

Contents

With the increasing awareness and understanding of risk management, there is a growing consensus that the collapse of firms such as Enron, Barings Bank, Societe Generale, Allied Irish Bank, Lehman Brothers, Intercontinental Bank, Oceanic Bank and even the 2007-09 global financial crisis could have been averted if effective risk management was applied. Moreover, the key to effective risk management is not only about knowing the different types of risks but having a holistic understanding of the complex correlation among the different types of risks and how to manage the inherent complexity in a turbulent regulatory and risk-prone business environment such as Nigeria.
