Operational risk management in banking has assumed such importance during the last decades. It has become increasingly important to measure, manage, and assess the impact of operational risk in the economics of banking. The paper aims to demonstrate how an effective operational risk management provides mitigating effects on Capital-at-Risk in banking. The paper provides evidences that an implementation of an operational risk transfer strategy reduces bank capital requirement and capital costs. The paper adopts the loss distribution approach, the Monte Carlo simulation, and copula methodologies to estimate the regulatory capital and simulate the operational risk transfer strategy in banking.
