All businesses face risk – internal as well as external. A useful acronym that summarises these risks is PESTEL – political, economic, socio-cultural, technological, environmental, and legal risk. Due to the speculative nature of some of their transactions, as well as the pressure to take on higher risk in order to gain a higher return for their shareholders, banks in particular face risk. Some of the key risks faced by banks include credit risk (the risk that the individual or corporate to whom the bank has lent money will fail to repay the loan in part or full), sovereign risk (the risk that a government will default on a loan agreement from a private sector bank), interest rate risk (the risk of losses due to changes in interest rates), operational risk (the risk of losses due to a breakdown in internal procedures such as systems failures, law suits, etc), currency risk (the risk of losses due to changes in foreign exchange rates), market risk (the risk of losses due to movements in the price function of financial instruments), and liquidity risk (the risk that the bank will not have sufficient assets on its balance sheet to cover its liabilities and will therefore be unable to meet its financial commitments without selling its assets). However, in all of the risks identified above, one risk that is not considered, but which nevertheless exists even today, is fraud. The following is the story of how one employee single-handedly brought down a 233-year old bank.
