Across the globe regulators are increasingly linking the amount of risk taken by a bank to the amount of capital it is required to hold and banks and financial services are increasingly being managed on risk-based management practices. The banks, their products, the regulations and the global market are becoming increasingly complex, driving ever greater challenges in effective risk management. A key lesson of the banking crisis of the last five years is that risks are highly integrated and to manage them efficiently banks have to understand these interactions.
Key features include:
the explanation of the current risk-based regulations
detailed review of the major risks faced by banks
industry best practices for adopting an enterprise approach to integrating risk management across an entire organisation
using governance techniques to build a group wide culture to ensure everyone takes an active role in managing risks in line with the banks strategic objectives
what challenges could be faced by risk managers in the future.
The course will make extensive use of case studies designed to explore, examine and reinforce the concepts and ideas covered over the five days. Historical events at banks will be used throughout the course to highlight how they have failed to manage their risks and actions that could have been taken to prevent loss.
The objective of this course is to help bank management deliver an appropriate integrated strategy for managing the complex and changing risks and regulations in today’s international banking environment. Specifically this course aims to give senior level management an understanding of:
major risk within the financial industry and the major international risk regulations
how to manage a bank’s assets and liabilities whilst maximising return
the interaction between risk types and how banks use an integrated approach for their management
corporate governance and the best practice approaches to managing the diverse interests of the stakeholders
how to develop a culture of risk governance as a tool for minimising unnecessary risk taking
