As banks and financial institutions begin to fully transition to Basel III compliance, the increased capital requirements of the international accord are becoming an increased burden. Increased capital requirements have raised the cost of capital for banks, forcing them to evaluate the profitability of certain riskier lines of business. The Basel regulations have made this a time of transition for banks with stress testing remaining, a vital part of their capital planning approaches.
The 7th Annual Capital Allocation and Stress Testing Conference will bring together regulators and top-level banking executives specializing in capital and risk management. By attending, delegates will discuss the latest strategies in ensuring that their practices around stress testing, capital adequacy, capital allocation and economic capital are sound enough for the bank in any economic scenario.
Additionally, with an evolving regulatory landscape, it is essential for all bankers to stay on top of changes to regulations in these critical areas. This year’s conference is a must for capital management professionals working to maximize returns through progressive stress testing and accurate measurement of economic and regulatory capital.
