The Basel regulatory framework comprises a set of minimum global standards that are designed, in principle, for internationally active banks. In practice, the Basel standards are imposed on a wider set of banks in 125 jurisdictions. Following the financial crisis, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) revamped the international regulatory framework by introducing additional measures to strengthen the resilience of the global banking system. While this has resulted in a more risk-sensitive framework, it has also increased complexity and implementation efforts in banking organizations of all sizes.
This modular live online workshop provides a comprehensive overview/perspective of how banks need to tackle the prudential regulation, i.e. achieving compliance with high standards of supervision, in particular requirements related to Basel III, and its finalization reform, which is commonly called “Basel IV”. The workshop covers all core Basel issues, including capital adequacy, risk-weighted assets, liquidity and funding, Pillar 2 requirements such as governance, risk appetite framework, internal controls, and capital/liquidity planning (ICAAP/ILAAP) and disclosure requirements under the Pillar 3.
The program is applicable for banks in the following countries in the GCC region and other Middle East countries: Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and UAE.
