About the course
Regulatory compliance implementation and best-practice principles (1-day virtual live-and-interactive workshop)
Compliance with the Basel Committee’s standards on interest rate risk in the banking book (BCBS 368) and EBA Final Report (July 2018) on Interest Rate Risk in the Banking Book (IRRBB) presents significant challenges to all banks with respect to measurement, calculation, reporting and hedging of interest rate risk, as well as potential implications for Pillar 2a capital requirement, and this whole area is the subject of current focus from the regulatory authorities. Banks need to ensure they are able to address all the requirements of the regulators whilst ensuring regulatory capital optimisation.
This one-day workshop provides comprehensive coverage of business best-practice approach to IRRBB regulatory compliance implementation, to ensure optimum compliance with Basel III and EBA standards. It explains the process and implementation of an efficient IRRBB measurement, reporting and hedging framework in clear and practical terms, to enable delegates to acquire an understanding of best-practice IRRBB principles, and how they can be integrated into their bank’s ALM policies.
A well-designed IRRBB framework enables a bank to pursue its strategic objectives, conversely a poorly implemented IRRBB framework can lead to long-term damage to a bank’s balance sheet structure and risk management position, not to mention material additional Pillar 2a capital add-on.
The workshop provides delegates with an in-depth understanding of the intricacies of IRRBB management, focusing on the different metrics involved and examining best practice approaches to modelling interest rate risk. Key topic areas including approaches to measurement and reporting, the Basel prescribed stress tests and disclosure requirements are covered in practical detail.
