Why You Should Attend

Capital Adequacy and Sustainability, Forecasting, Scenarios, Stress Testing, & Sensitivity

How will you benefit?

Banking, Wealth, Capital Markets, Treasury, and Asset Management organizations including their holding Companies (BHCs & IHCs) have traditionally forecasted and projected their balance sheets, P&L, revenues, and taxes through a top down, expert judgment approach. Fittingly, todayís leading practices are both top-down and bottoms-up using analytical and statistical model approaches that rely on detailed individual contract information that is consistent with todayís complex Comprehensive Capital Adequacy Review (CCAR) programs and rules. These past practices partly account for much of the negative feedback over the last years that many Banks have received about the inadequate quantitative underpinnings of their capital plans. During this training program, participants will take a fresh journey through the complexities of forecasting financial products, smart contracts, allocating capital to assets segments, projecting PPNR, losses (including OTTI), projecting capital markets activities and trading P&L, working with other comprehensive income (OCI) all while obtaining a better understanding and learning how to navigate through evolving government regulations, leading practices, and the vast array of approaches and methods supporting planning and analysis.


Banks look to fully realize their capital planning opportunities while keeping at bay the inherent risk associated with doing business. strategies and programs while minimizing risk and creating new opportunities through the leveraging of conditions, models, data, and behaviours. Banks must ensure that the components of PPNR, including net interest income, non-interest income and non-interest expense, and other key items managed by the firm such as balance sheet positions, RWA, and losses, are projected in a manner that is plausible, rational, and routinely consistent.
