Forward-looking and Incentive-compatible Operational Risk Capital Framework

Marco Migueis


This paper proposes an alternative framework to set banks' operational risk capital, which allows for forward-looking assessments and limits gaming opportunities by relying on an incentive-compatible mechanism. This approach would improve upon the vulnerability to gaming of the AMA and the lack of risk-sensitivity of BCBS's new standardized approach for operational risk.
