Towards the end of 2008, following the Western banking crisis, the Basel Committee announced a full-scale review of the banking control framework. This resulted in four major categories of change:
- Banking regulation: the rules became much more demanding and stricter
- Banking supervision: these was a global move away from banking regulation, with a heavy reliance on rules, towards more proactive and intrusive banking supervision
- Supervisory expectations: in certain aspects, the rules themselves did not change, but the interpretation and general observance became considerably more demanding
- Governance: it was generally held that weak bank governance, namely the pursuit of short-term gains at the expense of longer-term risks, lay at the heart of the recent crisis. Changes in governance were deemed to be essential – but how?
As a result, during the subsequent years, the industry has been flooded with proposals, consultative papers, impact studies, and firm decisions, and the process has not yet slowed down. This 3-day course is designed to discuss all of these various changes, and, more particularly, their impact on the banks and their business models, their customers and indeed on the banking supervisors.
In more detail:
· The evolution of the Basel II rules for bank capital: changes to both the quality and quantity
· Regulatory updates for Pillar 1 risks: credit, traded market risk, counterparty credit, and operational
- Comparing Dodd-Frank rules for credit risk with the new (2016) Basel rules
- Changes to both the Standardised and Advanced (Internal) approaches
· Introduction of a new Standardised approach for IR risk in the Banking Book
· Impact of the new Leverage constraint
· Impact of the new Liquidity requirements, especially the Net Stable Funding Ratio
· An outline of the changes in the Securitisation framework
· How to formulate and articulate stress tests in the new environment
· Changes to the ICAAP – setting of risk appetite – and the disclosure requirements
· The ongoing shift from Regulation to Supervision
· How does CRD IV (the European version) differ from Basel III
· Governance: what is meant by a Risk Culture, and how can it be implemented?
- What is the role of the Board of a bank?
- Who should be on the Board: skills and time requirements
- Board Risk Committees
But it is simple to describe narrowly the changes in regulation. This workshop goes much further, to discuss the likely effects of all these changes on the international banking business models, and therefore on other banks and bank customers.
And further still – what is a bank? Are they likely to facing competition from other organisations, which are not governed by banking regulation? Ultimately, what will the banking sector look like in 10 years time??
By attending this intensive 3-day course you will learn:
- The evolution of the Basel II rules for bank capital: changes to both the quality and quantity
- Regulatory updates for market, credit, and counterparty risks
- The big omission: what will happen to the rating agencies?
- Impact of the new Leverage and Liquidity constraints
- How to formulate and articulate stress tests
- Changes to the ICAAP
- How does CRD IV (the European version) differ from Basel III
- The likely effects of “Basel III” on the international banking business models, and therefore on other banks and bank customers
- Where does banking regulation go after this?
This will be a mixture of traditional teaching, combined with case-studies and computer demonstrations.
