With few previous data and literature based on the South African banking sector, the key aim of this study was to contribute further results concerning the effect of operational loss events on the reputation of South African banks. The study primarily focused on identifying reputational risk among Regal Treasury Bank, Saambou Bank, Standard Bank and African bank. The events announced by these banks occurred between 2000 and 2014. The results indicated significant cumulative abnormal returns on the announcement day for three of the four banks.
