As banks strive for value creation in a highly competitive environment, they inevitably create risks. The greatest threat to a financial institution is when such risks are not properly identified, measured or managed. In these circumstances the result is invariably unexpected losses, which, as the financial crisis demonstrates, can threaten the very existence of banks of all sizes. The regulatory response to recent events is contained in Basel III which sets out to make capital requirements more

risk-sensitive, enhance risk coverage and strengthen the loss absorbency of available capital. It introduces the concept of building capital buffers during good times so that banks are better positioned to absorb the losses that occur during periods of stress. This internal audit course will focus on the use of the risk based approach being applied to these business areas. Delegates will develop audit programmes during the course of the training event which will be of benefit to their firms in practice.
