Fundamentals of Risk Control in Banks Webinar

Seminar Overview


Explore in this Risk Control course the major risks a bank faces while carrying out its business and the corresponding risk control frameworks and regulatory capital treatments.

How are the risks faced by a bank different from the risks faced by other types of companies? More intriguingly, both a bank and an investor face market risk and credit risk; so, is a bank like an investor? Is the business of a bank taking large bets about the markets? These questions highlight the need to understand the business of a bank in order to understand the nature of the risks it faces. Risk control starts with the construction of a control framework which is aligned to the risk concerned; so how do the frameworks for the various risks look like? What are their commonalities and differences? What are the regulatory capital treatments for these risks? By answering these questions, this class provides a holistic view of risk control in a bank and at the same time overviews of the various risk disciplines.

This Risk Control course aims to foster an understanding of the risks a bank faces and the importance of protecting the capital of the bank by applying the appropriate risk control frameworks to align the bank’s risk-taking activity with its capacity to take risk
