Strategic planning, including the required quantitative methods, is an essential part of bank management and control. In this book capital, risk and yield are treated comprehensively and seamlessly. And a thorough introduction to the advanced methods of risk management for all sectors of banking is discussed. In addition, directly applicable concepts and data such as macroeconomic scenarios for strategic planning and stress testing as well as detailed scenarios for operational risk and advanced concepts for credit risk are presented in straightforward language. The book analyzes the effects of macroeconomic and regulatory developments such as the set of Basel III rules on planning, and it also presents and discusses the consequences for actively meeting these challenges, especially in terms of capital. A wealth of essential background information from practice, international observations and comparisons, along with numerous illustrative examples, make this book a useful resource for established and future professionals in bank management, risk/return management, controlling and accounting.

Regulating From the Inside

Author: Iris H-Y Chiu
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
ISBN: 9781509901388
Release Date: 2015-11-05
Genre: Law

This book examines a key aspect of the post-financial crisis reform package in the EU and UK-the ratcheting up of internal control in banks and financial institutions. The legal framework for internal controls is an important part of prudential regulation, and internal control also constitutes a form of internal gate-keeping for financial firms so that compliance with laws and regulations can be secured. This book argues that the legal framework for internal control, which is a form of meta-regulation, is susceptible to weaknesses, and such weaknesses are critically examined by adopting an interdisciplinary approach. The book discusses whether post-crisis reforms adequately address the weaknesses in regulating internal control and proposes an alternative strategy to enhance the 'governance' effectiveness of internal control.

Denmark Detailed Assessment of Observance of the Basel Core Principles for Effective Banking Supervision

Release Date: 2014-12-19
Genre: Business & Economics

This paper discusses key findings of the Detailed Assessment of Observance of the Basel Core Principles for Effective Banking Supervision (BCPs) on Denmark. Denmark has a high level of compliance with the BCPs. The Danish Financial Supervisory Authority has appropriate legal authority to carry out supervision effectively, and its risk-based approach has focused well on the key elements of risk within its banking system. The compliance with the credit-risk related principles is uniformly high and the provisioning policies have been adequately enhanced. Its overall supervision is also considered sound, although resource constraints result in an extended supervision cycle and some risk areas receiving insufficient attention.
