Combating Rogue Trading

Combating Rogue Trading

Retired

概要

The history of banking is littered with individuals who jeopardized their institutions through fraudulent activities. But so-called “rogue traders” do not set out to create losses or hide transactions. Instead, an incident occurs that causes them to deviate from the norm. However, despite several high-profile cases, banks continue to experience significant losses due to the activity of these traders.

This tutorial will increase your awareness of the risks associated with rogue trading. It is targeted primarily at the support functions for trading operations, including operations staff and middle office units such as finance, market risk, and credit risk. The tutorial will also be useful for senior executives looking to further their understanding of how rogue traders operate. Drawing on real life cases, you will learn how to identify and manage “out of the ordinary” requests and events that may be indicative of fraudulent behavior.
