"Dennis was well prepared, knowledgeable and very enjoyable."
Bank Internal Auditor, US Bank, Virginia

Basel 3 introduced changes to the way that operational risk capital is to be calculated for all banks.

The previous three versions of the capital calculation are to be replaced by only one calculation known as the revised standardised approach.

Whereas the Basel 2 version of the standardised approach relied upon the use of simple income-based measures, the revised standardised capital calculation takes a rather different approach.  This is both relatively complex and also is likely to create additional challenges both in terms of operational risk management and also operational risk reporting.

This course takes delegates progressively through these new requirements and considers the key changes that banks will need to make to their systems and data analysis to meet these new obligations.  It also addresses the important issues of the relationship of the capital calculation to operational risk management and what is the impact on other relevant issues including internal loss data collation, risk appetite modelling and stress testing.

"The instructor was very knowledgeable about the subject matter and presented in a manner to keep everyone's attention."
Operational Risk Manager, Commercial Bank, Cyprus
Who Should Attend

Designed primarily for operational risk management and finance/capital management staff and management within banks, delegates from internal control, internal audit, regulatory reporting and executive management will also benefit from this regulatory update and  its impact course.
