BANKING RISK MANAGEMENT
A healthy banking sector is crucial to the health of a developed economy. The very business of banking involves managing risk and the global financial crisis highlighted the damage that poor risk management can cause to both individual banks and the overall financial system. While there is nothing new about bank risk (banks have been failing since they were invented), something clearly went awry as the events of the crisis testify.
During this course, participants will learn the concept of risk management, its function & types and processes in the banking environment. Participants will learn the relationship between business strategy and risk and the various tools and techniques that banks use for assessing and managing/mitigating risk.
Who is the course for?
This course is aimed primarily at those working in a commercial/wholesale banking environment where risk assessment and credit approval is based on objective and subjective analysis and experience.
