Course Overview

Financial institutions have been managing their risk from inception. But the nature of risks management is fundamentally changing within these institutions. This programme is particularly well suited for risk management professionals who wish to up-skill themselves as well as those preparing for certification exams and wish to understand risk management in banking and financial markets in great detail. The programme is an interactive forum offering networking opportunities to share ideas, experiences and resources across risk categories of non-financial, financial and credit risk within a bank/financial institution. It will also give solutions to help find the most advanced technologies and products that will grow your business, cut costs and transform customer experience.

Participants will be guided by the leader of this programme, Prof. Elvis Cornerstone, a deep experienced practitioner with academic rigour, hence, will personally ensure that your progress is informed, focused and most importantly, enjoyable. In this recent banking and financial crisis and subsequent economic downturn, many financial institutions lost large amount of money and had to be taken over by government. Was this a failure of risk management? If yes, why? Answers will be revealed during the programme.
