The goal of this two-day course is to understand how risks are categorized, quantified, monitored and managed within banks and the regulation – in particular with respect to capital – that they are required to comply with.
The aim of this section is to introduce the inherent risks of a bank's balance sheet and the need for capital to cover these risks.
Key risk areas
Models and methodologies
Risk management failures
Regulatory capital in banks
Legal and reputational risks
This section introduces sources of market risk in the balance sheet and how this risk can be quantified and managed. Finally, the section covers the principles of regulatory capital allocation for market risk.
Credit risk is possibly the most important risk faced by most commercial banks. This section explains the nature of credit risk, including the relevant products, types of credit risk, quantification and regulatory capital methodologies.
Counterparty risk has grown in significance in recent years. It represents a combination of market and credit risk and is related mainly to OTC derivatives transactions. This section explains the nature of counterparty risk, risk mitigation and how regulatory capital methodologies for credit risk incorporate counterparty risk.
Operational risk was a new risk to be quantified under Basel II, and occurs throughout a bank’s business model. This section aims to explore some of the challenges that face banks in controlling, quantifying and allocating regulatory capital to operational risk.
Liquidity risk can be the most acute form of risk facing a financial institution at times of crisis as this is often the means by which providers of bank funding express dissatisfaction with management of other risks (e.g. credit risk). The aim of this section is to explore types of liquidity risk, how these risks are managed and the regulatory requirements faced by banks.
