A Masterclass in Risk Management

Five days of intensive training

9 - 13 November 2020

Central London

You will study the holy trinity of the risk management framework, the identification of risk, the quantification of risk and the management of risk within risk appetite and market constraint.

You’ll appreciate the concept of “whole entity” risk management. Integration of risk as a core process within all spheres of activity is vital – you’ll examine issues of governance, organisational structure, IT platforms, staffing, training and compensation.

You'll return to work able to:

  • Use your new understanding of risk and reward to make positive changes to your company’s governance, structure, processes, limits, training, recruitment and staff retention
  • Perform calculations of risk measures such as BP01, delta, CVaR and evaluate the risk models used in your firm
  • Engage with other stakeholders of the firm, including regulators and shareholders on the issues of risk and risk management
  • Make considered decisions on appropriate risk limits factoring in external constraints such as market structure, access, liquidity, central bank activity and political environment

The course begins with an overview of risk and return in banking and finance and how these are intimately linked with the economy and monetary policy. You’ll look at regulation with case studies and examples of Basel III / IV regulatory calculations, then focus on the specifics of market risk across assets classes, stressing the intimate relation with liquidity risk and its constraints. Hedging and risk control tools are extensively discussed, including securitisation
techniques for balance sheet management and ALM. You’ll study credit risk, credit evaluation and the impact of default correlation as a major risk factor for tail risk. You’ll move onto
operational risk and its overlap with all other risk areas and tackle liquidity risk.

Case studies and exercises ensure you make the transition from theory to practice with outstanding success.
