During this 2-day course you will have a chance to explore the Basel III guidelines and requirements focusing on the typical hurdles that banks are likely to face in achieving them.
We begin by outlining the basic structure of Basel III, which is founded upon three, primary pillars: Minimum Capital Requirements, Supervisory Review and Market Discipline. We then explain the criteria for satisfying the associated requirements but then discuss how these requirements have changed as Basel compliance shifted from “Basel II” to “Basel III”.
Finally, we discuss what is generally required to achieve each initiative using practical examples then extend this discussion to hurdles banks in emerging and newly-EU markets are facing.
Issues discussed will include:
• An overview of he major components of the Basel II/Basel III guidelines
• Differences between Basel II and Basel III
• Examples of what is required for compliance under the three Basel Pillars
• How to undertake the Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (ICAAP) and new, Basel III initiatives
• How to incorporate stress testing into Basel compliance
• Primary challenges to implementation—particularly in emerging and newly-EU markets
• Challenges to credit scoring and risk modeling
• Challenges in obtaining adequate vendor solutions
