Why You Should Attend

Utilising New Risk Tools and Models MENA

Across the MENA region there is a lack of standardisation in terms of regulatory demands. Different countries are pushing different elements of regulations, with some being keen on international standards like Basel III and others prioritising this far less. What is true for all banks, however, is that over the last few years their risk management teams have been asked to provide more information for regulators. A few years ago the ICAAP was introduced in the region and now banks are starting to look at stress tests. At the same time, standards for existing models (such as LGD and PD models) are undergoing some revision.

This GFMI event will provide delegates with the necessary tools to enhance their models for stress testing, ICAAP, and risk modeling. In addition attendees will learn how you can and should embed these processes into day to day risk management and factor the information provided into risk management decisions for the bank.

Key Topics

  • Embed the ICAAP into day to day decision making processes
  • Understand how stress testing requirements will impact your bank in the future, and how you can use the information generated from stress tests generated from stress tests
  • Utilise LGD and PD models for the benefit of the risk management function
  • Overcome the practical challenges for risk model use in the Middle East
