A Test of the Feasibility of a Common Metric for Non-Financial Risks

Time: 1.00pm - 3.00pm

Venue: Lecture Theatre 3, Ken Edwards Building

Risks cannot be effectively managed without first constituting the complete portfolio of granular exposures and validly aggregating them. This ‘Portfolio View’ is the essential foundation for effective risk control, auditing, public disclosure and the enabling of portfolio management tools and techniques such as trending, ranking, limit-setting, limit-monitoring, hedging, modelling and benchmarking. The application of such tools and techniques to the risks present in financial portfolios such as credit, investment and trading are well established. However, they have yet to be successfully adapted for the non-financial risks present in whole enterprises. Here, firms have universally defaulted to assessment-based, rather than measurement-based risk management systems. Exposures to non-financial risks are typically reported using a system of colour-codes (red / amber / green) with obvious limitations, the most significant being the absence of their valid aggregation. This lecture provides an overview of ongoing research at the Durham University Business School aimed at defining a new, additive common metric, capable of expressing and validly aggregating all the diverse forms of non-financial risks and testing its feasibility.Synopsis

Peter Hughes is a chartered accountant and a visiting fellow and member of the advisory board of Durham University Business School’s Centre for Banking, Institutions and Development (CBID).
