Learning Objectives

At the end of the course delegates should have a broad understanding of the following subject areas:

  • How banks are required to estimate the scale of their Credit, Operational and Market risks using one of the different levels of approaches (e.g. Standardised, Internal Ratings-Based, IRB)
  • The drawbacks of some of the methods and how they compare
  • The required ratios of the different types of capital
  • How the amount of existing capital is calculated
  • How the Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) and Net Stable Funding Ratios (NSFR) attempt to mitigate liquidity risk
  • The importance of Pillar Two (Supervisory review) given the swing from ‘light touch’ to intervention in the regulatory response to the crisis
  • The Pillar Three (Disclosure) requirements


A basic level of knowledge of banks, fixed income and derivatives would be helpful but is not essential.
