Due to the Basel II guidelines for Banking and Solvency 2 for Insurance, larger financial institutions are faced with the Pillar 1 calculation of regulatory capital for operational risk. For the banking industry this runs under the so-called Loss Distribution Approach.

In this talk I will review some of the LDA methods used in industry, point out their strengths and weaknesses and discuss possibilities for achieving a reliable LDA . Though my talk will very much touch upon applied issues underlying the quantitative modelling of operational risk, I will also highlight some of the more mathematical/methodological issues underlying the construction of appropriate risk measures.
