In the UK, Mazars has approximately 130 partners and over 2,250 employees, and is ranked one of the top 10 firms nationally.

Monte Carlo Plus


Complexity is inherent in operational risk. But that does not mean robust analysis of operational risk needs to be complicated. A different approach to risk was required to “translate” firms’ existing information into tractable analytics. So was born Monte Carlo Plus (mc+) to provide rapidly-deployable but sophisticated analysis of operational risks for any size of firm.

By providing an easy-to-use methodology and platform for operational risk, mc+ offers financial firms a rapid method to estimate operational risk capital requirements for ICAAP Pillar 2A and stress testing for Pillar 2B using firms’ subject-matter-expert judgment and minimal data points. Even new risk classes, such as cyber risks can be handled in analytically meaningful ways, enabling firms to judge whether insurance tranches and premiums represent value for money, so mc+ pays for itself.

Also, it is tried and tested: UK financial firms have used mc+ at all stages of the supervisory process including SREP. And, because firms can undertake sophisticated risk-based analysis simply but with a tiny learning curve, capital requirements for operational risk, including sensitivity analysis, can be calculated in a few hours, not months – a cost-efficient solution that moves firms to the next level of operational risk analysis and usability.
