This course equips the participants with a thorough understanding of the content of the Basel 2 agreements and the impact on banking operations and credit activities. It further focuses on the compliance aspects of Basel 2/3 and the application in emerging markets.

The content of the Basel agreements will be thoroughly analyzed as well as the COSO principles of operational risk management. In addition to the standards and regulatory environment, participants will also learn the minimum capital requirements, and how to identify and mitigate risk and defaults.

Following that, time will be devoted to implementing the guidelines into policies and identifying the right controls for your business. Quantitative and qualitative disclosures will be covered, and you will learn the cornerstones of an internal controls process. There will also be a discussion on Basel 2 and capital flows in the emerging economies. All aspects will be illustrated with examples and cases to master the techniques discussed and evaluate what works for your business.

This course can be delivered in-house to a team of people.
