Tue, 17/11/2009 - 13:52

17 - 18 November 2009

All too often banks have seen the need to effectively manage their operational risks as simply an issue of complying with what the bank regulator requires, rather than a disciplined process that serves to not only ensure a banks survival but which can, in the long run, contribute to that bank's financial fortune.
Implementing an effective Operational Risk Management regimen is a complex process. At its core is an understanding of what Operations Risk is, how it can be managed. This course explores the Operations Risk management function and mitigation strategies. It is intended to move the participants beyond the international compliance requirements and into risk management as a value added proposition, increasing the bank's profitability and structural strength.
