This three-day course provides participants with a clear understanding of the role and responsibilities of credit risk committees and how they can become a more effective part of the overall governance framework. This is done by looking in detail at the specific activities that credit risk committees review regularly as well as the context within the committee operates, including the banks’ business strategy, group risk appetite/risk tolerances and regulatory constraints. Ways in which the operational efficiency of the committee can be improved as also covered.

Attend this course and learn:

  • What best practice credit risk management looks like
  • About governance frameworks, how they are changing and where credit risk committees fit
  • The roles and responsibilities of credit risk committees
  • To put in place appropriate terms of reference (TORs) for credit risk committees
  • How to approach reviewing and challenging papers presented to the committee
  • To run effective credit risk committee meetings
  • To monitor compliance with TOR requirements and refresh them regularly
