Course Synopsis
Risk management is a crucial input into the strategic decision making of all banks. The way in which scarce assets are allocated, and the measurement of performance. This course includes a review of the latest models used by organisations to manage risk and the traditional techniques that enable managers to quickly assess and control it.

The three main sources of risk: market, credit and operational will be addressed. Delegates will analyse the general behaviour and risks of various markets and financial instruments, how these risks occur, how they may be measured, what mitigation approaches may be adopted and ultimately how the risks may be managed. Particular emphasis will be paid to the various approaches proposed in the new Basel Accord. The course will also discuss firm wide risk management and the internal uses of economic capital to improve the allocation of scarce resources.

The course is divided into five key areas, which are self-contained. The first day covers Total Risk Management, the second day will look at Market Risk, and the third day focuses on Credit Risk. The last two days are more technical, the fourth focusing on credit risk and the fifth day on Operational Risk.

This course is an intermediate course designed to explain to delegates the role of the risk management function and how it adds value to an organisation, explaining the key components of risk management and providing practical examples and tools.
