ABSTRACT
This research employs a qualitative technique to examine the complexities of settlement risk in Lebanese banks against the backdrop of the country's volatile economic environment. This study explores many dimensions of settlement risk, including operational, regulatory, and market elements, through comprehensive interviews with five key personnel spanning from risk analysts to senior executives in the banking sector. Given the context of economic uncertainty, political upheaval, and strict international regulations, the banking industry in Lebanon has largely focused on identifying the underlying factors contributing to settlement risk. The respondents provided insight into the management strategies used to mitigate these risks and the ongoing challenges encountered by the banking industry. The findings suggest that Lebanese banks encounter specific obstacles, including but not limited to technology deficiencies, varied regulatory frameworks, and geopolitical volatility. The presence of a complicated risk environment is evident, but it is also apparent that there are internal measures in place to mitigate settlement risks. This study presents empirical data that might be valuable for policymakers, financial analysts, and academic academics to gain a deeper understanding of the intricate characteristics of settlement risk in Lebanese banks. The need to implement a comprehensive and cohesive risk management plan to safeguard the Lebanese financial system is emphasized.
