From earthquakes to insider trading - Algorithmics at G-COR V (Global Conference on Operational Risk)
21-Apr-2011 | News-Press Release
Toronto, London, New York – April 20, 2011– Algorithmics, the world's leading provider of enterprise risk solutions, will be at this year's G-COR V (Global Conference on Operational Risk) in Boston, MA, on May 3rd and 4th, 2011.
At the conference, Laura Polak, Director, Operational Risk Content, will be speaking on disaster-related operational risks and examining how an operational risk perspective can help understand how these types of events have a broader impact across risk types in an institution.
It is critical that risk practitioners, including those in operational risk, take a broader view of natural disasters and see what additional impacts they may have; for example, in terms of available funding for spend on investment; or understanding how they may impact existing projects, or growth for specific products or industries. The type of events that are recorded as operational risk can be more comprehensive and have the impact of touching other categories of risk, such as credit or market. Institutions need to ensure that they take a broader focus when examining these types of loss.
Laura Polak will be speaking at 2:15 pm on Tuesday, May 3rd as part of Stream 3 and her presentation topic is From Earthquakes to Insider Trading: Looking at Recent External Events.
