Course description

Risk Assessment and Stress Test

Since risk management has been formalized within Basel Accords, stress-testing has invariably been an after-thought. It has been a necessity to watch liquidity risk, therefore inducing financial institutions into forgetting that stress-testing is, at any time, a good managerial practice. This course will provide an in depth look at the key provisions of the Basel III regulatory framework, the ongoing risk assessment practice within banks, and the vital role of stress testing. Upon completion, participants will have a comprehensive understanding of internal risk assessment. There will be an in depth analysis of why stress testing is vitally important to financial institutions, how to conduct stress testing, and why financial regulators are so preoccupied with stress testing.
