While operational risk has long been regarded as a mere part of "other" risks--outside the realm of credit and market risk--it has quickly made its way to the forefront of finance.

Filled with in-depth insights, expert advice, and innovative research, this comprehensive guide not only presents you with an abundant amount of information regarding operational risk, but it also walks you through a wide array of examples that will solidify your understanding of the issues discussed.
