Course Overview

Every institution needs the promulgation of targeted rules to structure the behaviour and activities of individuals and major actors within a given context without postulating where the rules come from and how they are imposed. Governments provide appropriate mechanisms to minimize financial system instability and deal with emerging risks by having regulation and supervision aligned. You can’t have one without the other.

This course provides participants with an overview of the prudential framework within which regulations and supervisory responsibilities are carried out by central banks and other regulatory institutions and to guide them through the new accounting rules on financial instruments and fair value measurement. The course will also review the latest developments in banking supervisory and regulation, such as changes to capital adequacy standards, the new Basel liquidity measurement rules, and supervision of systemically important banks, as well as assess the details of the newest standards and the current and future role of bank regulators, standardized methods, internal models, credit risk management systems and securitization, emphasizing risk-based supervision and Basel accords issues.

Participants will be actively engaged through case studies and group exercises. Sessions will focus on aspects of particular relevance to each region and discuss both the main implementation challenges and their implications for banks and supervisory authorities.

The course is designed to equip participants with the tools to meet the various banking challenges facing experts in banking regulation and supervision.
