This course will take you step by step through the new Basel Capital Accord, commonly referred to as Basel II and III, examining the new risk management approaches introduced as a result of the regulations, and looking into the latest techniques used to achieve compliance.

The course tutor is an active practitioner with many years experience working with banks throughout their Basel programme. Practical examples and real life experience will be used to put the Accord requirements into context and show how real business benefit can be achieved through more than just meeting minimum regulatory requirements.

The course will begin by putting the Basel regulations in context, examining the journey from the original capital requirement directive to the development of the risk-sensitive framework that is Basel II, and finally through to the recent Basel III proposals. The different approaches allowed under Basel II will be examined in detail, focusing on the areas which are receiving most attention from regulators.

The measurement of credit risk, market risk and operational risk will be explained. The differences and considerations for different methods will be discussed and examples given. The credit risk framework of Basel contains many sets of rules for different areas – and these will be introduced and discussed. How these rules are changing under Basel III will be explained.

The expert tutor will look at the reasons for the enhancements to the regulations proposed in Basel III, and how this is expected to strengthen the banking sector. The changes to capital requirements, enhancing the coverage of credit and market risk calculations and the introduction of the new leverage ratio and the framework for managing liquidity risk will all be explained in details.
These new Basel III regulations will be put into context by looking at current state of implementation and international timescales, along with consideration of the likely impact on individual banks and the overall banking sector. The tutor will also share his experience and thoughts on the future direction of the regulations and risk management.
