Credit Departments within banks have become increasingly complex driven by the demands of regulation and business practices. This level of increase in sophistication has accelerated in recent years as many banks have developed credit departments with ever increasing responsibilities.
There has been an increased use of modelling credit risk as a result of the implementation of IFRS9 and also the developments in the global credit markets. The Credit Risk - Revised Capital Rules & Impact of Covid-19 Masterclass will take you through the key modelling techniques that are applied and highlighted to meet the demands of regulations. The crisis of 2020/2021 has resulted in the assessment of both corporate and retail customers becoming increasingly complex. The challenge is to move to a forward-looking model which properly assesses the key elements of credit risk. This will be considered throughout this course.
An understanding of the impact of the current crisis on credit risk modeling and assessment.
An appreciation of the key issues relating to credit models and how they can be resolved.
An understanding of the changing capital requirement and what this means for risk management and governance.
To enable attendees to appreciate the key issues relating to the modelling of credit risk and it’s role within the credit approval process.
