Warren Buffett

  • Enhancing knowledge on risk rating systems

Why this training is crucial for your organisation :

    The perception of risk management is changing in today’s institutions. Instead of being viewed merely as a control mechanism, it now forms the basis of every transaction at financial institutions. Credit risk is by far the most significant risk faced by a bank, and judging by the global financial crisis, it also the most complex. Banks now need to assess every transaction in terms of the increase in risk to the institution, with the assurance that the pricing of the credit transaction will generate a suitable return. Such a risk culture is enforced by the new Basel Accord, which requires banks to allocate regulatory capital against the major components of risk, using either regulatory internal models.

    This three day course will equip your Risk Management staff with the skills necessary to effectively manage credit risk in portfolios, loans and instruments. By gaining an advanced understanding of the credit granting and measurement process, internal risk rating systems and portfolio management, and the new regulatory requirements of Basel III, your key Risk Management staff will be able to integrate global best practices within your organization, ensuring effective credit risk management and minimal financial losses for your company.
