Bank Regulation for Supervisory Purposes

Registration closed

  • General description

    The course aims on the one hand to provide an overview of the micro-prudential framework (Pillar I and II), and on the other to guide participants through the new accounting rules on financial instruments and fair value measurement. Particular attention will be dedicated to the main measures put in place by the micro-prudential regulators to address the deficiencies identified during the crisis. In this context, the course will also offer a snapshot of the key features of the December 2017 Basel document to finalize the so called “post crises reforms”.

    Since this regulatory framework has its root in the accounting framework, the main elements of the IFRS standards on financial instruments and fair value measurement and their implications from a regulatory perspective will be presented during the course. Moreover, a deep dive on the main differences between the accounting and the regulatory frameworks with reference to consolidation will be discussed. A specific focus on the BCBS Guidelines on the identification and measurement of step-in risk will also be provided.

  • Topics covered

    • An overview of the solvency ratio: regulatory capital and Pillar I risks.

  • How the course will work
