The 6th installment in our Capital Allocation series will continue to build on the successes of previous years. This year’s conference will focus more on stress testing, so banks may not only comply with regulatory standards, but also better their business. Another key topic of discussion will be Operational Risk, a historically troublesome form of risk for banks to effectively quantify.

With rules and standards established in the wake of the financial crisis reaching full implementation, or at a minimum gaining strength, banks must focus on improving their stress testing capabilities and installing these as a vital process rather than an annual or once-off compliance exercise. In addition, frustrations surrounding internal competencies in the quantification of operational risk are increasingly impacting a bank’s ability to meet Pillar II guidelines while missing potential opportunities to gain a competitive advantage and do a better job of allocating capital.

This conference will bring together regulators and top-level banking executives specializing in capital and risk management to discuss the latest strategies in ensuring that their practices around stress testing, capital adequacy, capital allocation and economic capital are sound enough for the bank to weather an economic downturn. Additionally, with an evolving regulatory landscape, it is essential for all bankers to stay on top of changes to regulations in these critical areas. The 6th Annual Capital Allocation and Stress Testing Conference is a must for capital management and operational risk management professionals working to maximize returns through progressive stress testing and the reliable quantification of operational risk.
