Operational resilience has become a term almost as important to regulators as that of ensuring adequate capital reserves for third-party investment groups, driven by market shocks of 2020 and the realisation that unthinkable doesn't mean impossible. Fund operational professionals need to react, and react fast, as regulators, senior managers, and clients come to ask, 'what happens to this fund in severe market changes?'

This special report follows on from our Operational Resilience for Buy-Side Investors virtual conference. The report examines from the UK Financial Conduct Authority's perspective along with industry practitioners, the latest thinking towards operational risk management (identification and mitigation), challenging perceptions as to how to best develop and manage an optimal operational resilience strategy to provide readers with actionable insight to improve their own approaches from.
