OPE25 Accounting and Finance 2023 Summit

Financial Performance Disclosures outside of the OPE25 standard - RWA Calculation for Operational Risk, are now erroneous. They fall under Section 802 (Criminal Requirements for Falsification of Documents) of the SOX Act in the United States and similar provisions in other countries.


Helping banks and CCRs (insurance, industrial and service companies, including local authorities) to take the critical step of Loss Mitigation Account Reporting to OPE25 finalizing post-Basel III crisis reforms  - Economic capital accounts (EC) and SOX ratio to be taken into account to prevent and avoid bankruptcies.

It is now urgent to accelerate, encourage and support banks and CCRs to cross this critical threshold of weighted assets for counterparty credit risk (CCR) based on the Corporate Accounting process. Measuring the gaps to be filled at each reporting date taking into account the economic capital for mitigating losses, the accounting approach known as the "standardized approach" in force since January 1, 2023 is essential to avoid a new widespread bankruptcy of the banking system.

The failure of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) and the series of bank failures that followed in March 2023 show that banks are not immune to financial crises until they complete the finalization of the post-Basel III crisis resulting in the OPE25- Calculation of RWA for operational risk. This is a critical phase of the Basel III post-crisis reforms: 

  • "The proper identification, collection and treatment of internal data on losses are essential prerequisites for the calculation of capital under the standardized approach". 

This accounting process provides the economic capital accounts and the SOX ratio which have a significant impact on the BIC (Business Indicator Component) used for the calculation of the minimum capital requirements for operational risk (CBCB, "Basel III: Finalizing post-crisis reform", Dec. 2017). These shortcomings of corporate accounting and finance are at the root of financial crises. What was missing for action is the FinTech guidance the Financial Stability Board will show on June 27, 2017. The chain of cause and effect has long been known. 

  • Losses related to operational risk impact cost prices and the entire economic system: high prices lead to high interest rates on the 3 markets: goods and services market, labor market and money market. These are the instability cycles known as the Irving Fisher model (The Purchasing Power of Money, 1911).

The calculation of RWA (Risk-Weighted Assets or counterparty credit risk) makes it possible to measure the unexpected risk based on a one-year outstanding amount of the borrowing party. Economic capital and the SOX ratio are essential for accounting requirements for valuation adjustments for counterparty risk. A prudent and credible calculation of RWA is therefore an integral part of the risk-based capital framework since RWA makes it possible to estimate and adjust the risk determining the minimum level of regulatory capital that a bank must keep facing to unexpected losses.

Fill with us the gaps in accounting method and technology:

This is the goal of the 2023 Accounting and Finance Summit - Calculation of RWA for operational risk:

Empowering internal teams to provide Economic Capital (EC) accounts and SOX ratios that better secure the liquidity risk of banks and counterparties Credit risk (insurance, industries, and services, including local authorities) than the assumption risky "Too Big to Fail".

 Due to a lack of skills and appropriate FinTech software, the laws and regulations of the countries put in place since 2017 have not allowed banks and CCRs to set up the operational risk management accounting system which would have made it possible to avoid bankruptcies. . This is the case in the EU with article 9a of the European directive of May 17, 2017 (Shareholder rights II) and in the USA of the SEC Non-GAAP Financial Measures of April 4, 2018, which set the legal framework for ' 'General criteria for identifying, collecting and processing loss data' (BCBS, Dec. 2017) which is now integrated into the Basel III Consolidated Framework, for OPE25, https://www.bis.org/basel_framework / 


IR data missing from the OPE25 standard to be provided to investors (Banks, stock exchanges and insurers under the control of the SEC and banking supervisors)

Usual financial publications + missing data from the Economic Capital Accounts + SOX ratio


Where to provide these missing data?

You must act at two levels to provide investors with the missing additional financial information.

1/ At the level of the human capital accounts to be provided, complete under the OPE25 the critical HR financial ratios usually presented as those that matter to the investor [Net income group share per share, diluted net income group share per share, Operating coefficient, international solvency ratio, Return on equity (ROE), Workforce at the end of the year and Average workforce]. 

This data is clearly insufficient to make an informed investment decision on future financial performance. Add the 10 rows of missing internal financial security accounts:

• Current average workforce, 

• Current average net income, 

• Current contribution per employee to average net income, 

• Estimated Absolute VaR (Gross loss or loss before recoveries), 

• Potentially Recoverable Losses or recovery (Absolute VaR - Risk Appetite Threshold) calibrated to the tolerance rate of losses in your line of business), 

• 3-year plan to recover historical absolute VaR losses (UL + EL), 

• Free Gross Cash Flow per employee, 

• Economic Capital or Net Cash Surplus obtained in return for Variable salaries or Incentivized Pay, 

• SOX ratio of the capital structure, 

• Fixed salary future financial performance measurement data for salary negotiations in year N or 1st year of the plan in accordance with BCBC, Dec. 2017: accounting based on historical data].

2/ Complete your financial hedging instruments:

• A hedging financial instrument is a derivative financial product which makes it possible to reduce or cancel the risk inherent in a hedged item called the underlying. Many underlying financial instruments can be the subject of a hedging operation, we quote, shares, bonds, currencies, raw materials, rates.

This transversal area of expertise has few experts in the world, hence the persistence of the same shortcomings in the accounts published for 21 years 

(Remember the stock market crash of 2001-2002, against a backdrop of the debt crisis companies and resounding bankruptcies affecting the Enron and WorldCom groups).

Two world-renowned experts, researchers, and scholars from the University of San Francisco (Department of Accounting), co-authors of numerous authoritative publications and action-research case studies in banking and all industry sectors, help you to comply with the OPE25 Corporate Accounting and Finance standard known as the “standard approach” which replaces the mathematical or stochastic (statistics and probabilities) approach to financial risk.

Virtual conferences at your own pace based on applied case reports of OPE25 accounts - Calculation of RWA for the operational risk of the banking and CCRs sectors (Insurance companies, industries, and services, including local authorities) to avoid penalties for non-compliance with SOX control and financial reporting from 2023 by filling long-standing gaps in financial reporting.

Register now to avoid penalties for non-compliance with SOX control and financial Reporting 2023

This is the one-stop global and partner virtual event to align banks and Counterparties Credit Risk (CCR), SMEs, large accounts, Stock Exchange Companies and Finance Professionals with the OPE25 standard which now engages the criminal liability of Boards of Directors, managers, chartered accountants, and auditors.

  • To be compliant from January 1, 2023, to raise funds on the stock market or obtain bank credit, financial reporting requires cross-cutting interaction data on internal financial performance. These are the economic capital (EC) accounts and the internal financial security SOX ratio which must be disclosed by the audit of the additional information supplementing the audited financial statements under AS 2701 (PCAOB Release No. 2013- 008) under the laws and regulations of countries, such as in the United States the SEC Non-GAAP Financial Measures of April 4, 2018, or in the EU, article 9a, of the European Directive of May 17, 2017, " Shareholder Rights II.

The laws and regulations of the OPE25 framework have indeed supplemented the SOX Act and the other countries internal control laws as expected. The US Senate vote creating “The Human Capital Assessment and Accountability Framework (HCAAF)” was passed in 2002, i.e., the same year as SOX Act whose Section 902 (Corporate Responsibility for Financial Report) was to be considered with Sections 404 (Operational Risk Control), 302 (Financial Reports and Internal Controls), 409 (Feedback in Real Time) and 802 (Criminal Requirements for Falsification of Documents).

The leadership that we hold in this area of expertise with the networking of universities and MBA Schools, gives us the responsibility of empowering Finance Professionals and the internal teams of banks and Counterparties Credit Risk (CCR) to take the methodological and technological aspects of Corporate Accounting & Finance required by the standard approach to the treatment of operational risk losses.


The difficulty to overcome is the process generating the economic capital accounts and SOX ratio and on which accounting lines banks and CCRs should provide investors with these OPE25 data, hitherto absent from financial publications.

The OPE 25 standard - Calculation of RWA for operational risk underpins the accounting and financial management strategy of Banks and Counterparties Credit Risk or CCR. To be realistic, the mathematical or quantitative approach (statistics and probabilities) for estimating the forecast turnover and future cash flows, in particular the calculation of the growth rate, must now be linked to the corporate accounting process taking into account the total paid workforce, due to the predominant effect of HR, to mitigate losses generating economic capital accounts and the SOX ratio impacting both the cost price of products and services sold and the competitiveness of the entity and securing investments. 


At the end of the summit, the participants CEOs, CFOs, HRMs, OMs, Heads of operational units or Cash Generating Units (CGU) as well as Treasurers from both the private and public sectors, in particular local authorities, have an overview of the cross-cutting interaction process of Corporate Accounting & Finance generating the added value of the Total Paid Workforce. They know in which section of their financial publications they must provide the missing "Loss data identification, collection and treatment" data required by BCBS, Dec 2017. This requirement is now integrated into the Consolidated Basel III Framework, for OPE25 in force since January 1, 2023 (https://www.bis.org/basel_framework/).

Considering the practical case studies learned, attendees will be able to produce, under the coordination of the finance function, similar periodic reporting accounts and setting up by learning by doing, the FinTech architecture of cross-cutting interaction completing, without changing anything to the existing one, the IT of the business units and the Loss Executives.
