Capital Modelling and Capital Management Training Course
Course Highlights and Agenda
Understand in detail how regulatory and economic capital interact in the post credit crunch world.
In this course we will look in detail at how capital requirements are modelled and how these capital requirements can be managed under the existing and likely new regulations.
This intensive course focuses on the Basel regime and how it has developed and where it is likely to go.
A combination of lectures and structured workshops will give delegates a detailed understanding of 'Capital Modelling and Management of Capital' in the current and likely future frameworks.
