Basel III & New Advances In Regulation

Training : Basel III & New Advances In Regulation

Date : Tue, 21/06/2016   for 2 Days

Country : UK

Regulators around the world, following successive crises, have been working hard to formalise banks’ risk management in most countries, through global accords from which Basel III is the most topical. Such body of regulatory texts is now setting the landscape for the competition between banks for years to come, and imposing risk managers within decision-making bodies of banks. It is now, more than ever, critical for banks to master their risk processes and to integrate these in their governance, above and beyond what regulation requires.   This practical 2 day course addresses all the key issues which will affect banks as a result of Basel III implementation and helps risk practitioners to implement risk management structures and processes in a post-Basel III world to help them stay compliant and competitive at the same time.    You may be also interested in our:  Enterprise-Wide Risk Management & Stress Testing - 12-13 May 2016, London   Register for both programmes at the same time and save £100! »
