Agenda Highlights

Learn the key challenges within credit risk emanating form the current crisis.

Appreciate how the rules are changing and the impact that this will have.

Understand the impact on models of the current crisis and the actions to be taken.


Credit Departments within banks have become increasingly complex driven by the demands of regulation and
business practises. This level of increase in sophistication has accelerated in recent years as many banks have developed credit departments with ever increasing responsibilities.

There has been an increased use of modelling credit risk as a result of the implementation of IFRS9 and also the
developments in the global credit markets. This course looks at the key modelling techniques that are applied and
highlights these to meet the demands of regulations. However the crisis of 2020/2021 has resulted in assessment of
both corporate and retail customers becoming increasingly complex. The challenge is to move to a forward looking
model which properly assesses the key elements of credit risk. This will be considered throughout this course.

We now also have the revised Basel 3 capital rules to contend with. These result in bank credit capital management
diverging from bank risk management. They raise more questions than they answer. In this course we shall look at
these requirements and the impact that this is likely to have.

It also considers how models have performed during the crisis of 2020/2021 and the key lessons that have been
