Elseware has developed a forward looking approach for operational risk scenarios quantification. References include the top banks in the US, UK and Europe. The approach builds on the Exposure, Occurrence and Impact, (XOI) and is the first forward-looking approach approved as an internal model by regulators in 2011 (ACPR) and 2015 (PRA). It is now gaining momentum after its adoption by large US institutions for CCAR, while banks and representatives are advocating for better methods for operational risk capital. MSTAR software implements the XOI method.

MSTAR is an innovative approach that’s bridging the gap between risk quantification and risk management.
