“Banks face significant challenges in implementing new regulatory liquidity and capital adequacy measures”

How will you benefit?

Since 2009, banks around the world have faced significant challenges in implementing new regulatory liquidity and capital adequacy measures. The amount and degree of change has been unprecedented. In combination with increased fines for non-compliance and in conjunction with cost constraints due to a low-growth economy, regulatory compliance has become a significant driver in lowering profitability.

The move from Basel II to Basel III has, as well, impacted business operations generally rather than a single specific area due to the focus in governance and the decision-making process. These additional cost constraints, tied to inflexible timelines for implementation mean that banks need to be thoughtful in their implementation plans for Basel III if it is not to impact their targeted strategic returns and global competitive position,

This intense 2-day course will provide banks with practical tools and sound advice to tackle the changing regulatory requirements in addition to meeting crucial strategic and business objectives. Attendees will focus on determining the optimal balance sheet composition for their Target Operating Model that will satisfy regulatory concerns while retaining profitability. They will also learn how to integrate liquidity management into their organization’s risk management framework and more closely integrate Treasury activities to ensure that liquidity tools are being used to their full capacity.

About your expert trainer:

Donna Marie Howe is a banker, risk management and finance professional with more than 25 years industry experience in the US financial services sector. With the rare ability of combining high-level quantitative skills with qualitative management excellence she has held a variety of senior risk management roles in some of the world’s most established banks including Deutsche Bank, UBS, ABN AMRO, and Santander. Well-known within the North American risk community she has served for more than 10 years on the Board of the Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP) and between consultancy and corporate training projects teaches at several major universities in New York City and the Northeast.

She was also responsible for risk management of the US consortium of clearing members when negotiating with the exchanges to set up clearing for single-family CDS. Dealing with potential scenarios where everyone is expected to be "rushing for the exits" and yet not causing systemic harm was a challenge that she met. Lastly, she was responsible for risk managing the 600-odd buy-side customers of a large Swiss financial institution during the 2008 crisis. Collateral exchanges, derivatives management and strategic unwinds were all part of the toolkit used with success.

Pre-course questionnaire:

A detailed questionnaire will be sent to all course participants to establish exactly where the group training needs lie. The completed forms will be analysed by the course leader/trainer and followed by telephone if further clarification is required. As a result we can guarantee that the course is pitched at exactly the right level and that the issues that you regard as relevant are addressed. The course material will reflect these issues and will enable you to digest the subject matter after the event in your own time.
