Although many risk managers question the validity and trustworthiness of credit risk and market risk models in the aftermath of the Great Recession, the reality is that our most advanced tools for risk measurement are in credit and market risk models.

Credit risk management relies on a holistic consideration of the borrower’s current and past financial situation, as well as his/her future economic situation. There are robust mathematical models for credit risk modelling, although assumptions in those models can often prove problematic.

Terms might even be modified for the borrower’s benefit to reduce risk. And even if a borrower goes bankrupt, the creditor can expect some financial recovery (which is often material and high).

Often these more persistent impacts are not measured in this form of operational risk.
