The function of Risk Management has always been seen as the foremost challenge for every participant in the financial markets with credit risks constituting a substantial amount of concern to banks, lenders and regulators worldwide. The advent of globalization, advances in information technology, accelerating pace of business, and threats of terrorism have resulted in the increasing number of risks facing organisations. Increasingly, success depends on identification, quantification and management of a variety of complex risks. While Risk Management is a central concern of every bank or any large organisation, difficulties arise when one attempts to define and implement Risk Management strategies across the company. Rather than being condemned to a growing paralysis caused by the obstacles, many banks or any large organizations have come to realise the importance of good corporate risk management. More than ever, Risk Management is at the heart of many critical decisions.

This thoroughly-researched conference is Avail Corporation’s 2nd annual event of our RiskAsia Series. Credit Congress will equip delegates with the latest techniques for credit risk management and is designed to give participants the skills and strategies to render wise credit decisions and understand the inner workings of state-of-the-art risk measurement and management methods. This will allow participants to understand and develop a system on their own. This conference will also drill down into the practicalities of collateralised debt obligations (CDOs), one of the fastest growing areas in credit derivatives. As the market becomes ever more complex with variations such as CDO squared and leveraged super senior CDOs, such detailed understanding is essential.
