Florence School of Banking & Finance and School of Transnational Governance Joint Course

Credit and Market Risk Management: A Value-based Approach

Registration closed

  • General description

    As the banking world is shifting from an overriding concern for growth to a preoccupation with long-term value creation and risk control, the adequacy of management and governance of credit and market risks become a necessity for all bankers accountable for the results of a profit center, working in risk management, bank strategy, ALM or financial control, for bank auditors and for bank supervisors in charge of assessing the adequacy of risk management systems.

    Instead of focusing solely on statistical modeling, the discussion of credit and market risk is anchored in a value-based management framework. The holistic view on risk control and governance provides a transparent integrated approach to discuss risk avoidance or risk-taking, economic capital allocation for credit and market risk, measurement of performance, credit risk pricing, expected loss provisioning, credit risk diversification, securitization and marketplace funding, and evaluation of market risk with VAR or expected shortfall metrics. This integrated approach facilitates an assessment of the adequacy of credit and market risk governance in banking.

    The discussion allows to appreciate the evolution of the Basel regulations with Final Basel 3 (Basel 4) and the 2016 fundamental review of the trading book.
