Smart About Risk  
Basel II

Basel II

The seminar Basel II is organized as an open seminar for employees from different institutions and also as an in-house seminar organized for employees of clients with tailor made requirements.

Objectives of the seminar

The objective of the seminar is to inform attendees about the regulatory framework for banks and financial institutions - Basel II and the impact of the regulation on day-to-day operations of financial institutions. The seminar covers in detail all three "pillars" of Basel II (calculation of capital requirement, supervisory process and market discipline). Special attention is paid to banks' internal models and terms and conditions of their use for the calculation of capital requirements in connection with credit, market and operational risk.

For whom it is intended

Regarding the fact that regulation Basel II will significantly impact many areas of operation of financial institutions, most of their employees should be informed about it. Bearing that in mind, we have prepared several variations of the seminar, depending on the different level of initial knowledge of participants and the duration of the seminar.
