Bank Risk Management (2 days – EUR 1.200)

(This training is available for English and Dutch groups)

Since the ’80s, banks have become huge financial supermarkets offering a wide range of different services and products. Deregulation of the financial system, liberalization of financial markets and rapid IT developments created a huge financial sector. This lead to ‘too big to fail (and manage?)’ financial institutions. At the same time, intense competition and the search for yield were an incentive for bank managers to create extremely leveraged and thus risky operations. In 2008 the financial system nearly collapsed. Governments decided to create new regulations based on the recommendations of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision.

After attending this varied and interactive training you will understand:

  1. What are core bank activities and income sources.
  2. The risks of banking and tools to manage risks – What determines the risk appetite of banks?
  3. What is the role of the Basel Committee of Banking supervision?
  4. Credit crisis 2008: what happened and what is the impact on banks.
