Strategic Bank Management under Basel III

Anyone working in banking knows that the world today is wholly different. The aftershocks from the credit crisis, continued problems with impairments, slow economic growth, the pressure on bank capital and liquidity, and new rules and regulations, have all combined to make bank management significantly more difficult.

Basel III – the new system for determining the level of banks’ capital and liquidity –creates a much more challenging environment for banks to operate within, and it is getting more difficult every year as the minimum requirement is raised step-by-step.

Never before has it been so important for bankers – at all levels and in all roles – to understand the complexities of banking in the 21st century, to be aware of how their role fits in, to comprehend the big picture, and to identify problems before they become serious.

This seminar does just that. Using the sophisticated Global Banker simulation within a realistic and detailed scenario, it shows delegates how to develop effective solutions to today’s problems and strategies to ensure that their bank maintains profitability.

Over an intensive three-day period, delegates will:
  Obtain a detailed overview of total bank operations – seeing clearly how everything fits together.
  Appreciate the impact of Basel III on commercial bank operations.
  Identify and analyse a bank’s exposure to the various sources of risk.
  Appreciate the dynamics of commercial banking – exploring the interactions between  funding, lending, liquidity, and capital.
  Assess how banks use derivatives to manage their risk exposure
  Understand asset and liability management concepts – and how they affect day-to-day decisions throughout the bank.
  Broaden the breadth and depth of their banking knowledge – learning about and gaining first-hand experience within each major area of the bank.

After taking part, delegates will learn to recognise the wider impact of their actions, and will be able to apply more astute judgement in the execution of their decisions. In an ever more complex and risky world, Global Banker will help delegates achieve the critical edge.

"The material was not delivered in a vacuum. The instructor always had an example / actual article to illustrate his point, so the class turned out to be a lot more interesting about real-life markets."
