Basel III – What's new vs. Basel II
Tuesday, March 4, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM (PST)
This Basel III training will focus on the key aspects of Basel III and highlight how it differs from those in Basel II. It will discuss additional compliance requirements for Basel III, the costs involved, implementation timelines and provide a framework for end-to-end implementation.
Why Should You Attend:
Although US financial institutions have been managing risk exposures for years and are constantly striving for regulatory compliance, supervisory qualification remains difficult, and seems like a mirage in the distance. The introduction of new or revised regulations combined with a constant rising of the bar by regulators keeps banks’ risk and finance managers on their toes and mandates that they remain current with industry leading practices.
Banks have already spent a significant amount of capital on Basel II compliance and an additional amount will be spent to comply with Basel III. This cost increases if one were to include other regulations such as Dodd Frank (DFAST, CCAR) and Sarbanes-Oxley.
This session will provide an insight into what is needed from an end-to-end planning perspective while recognizing forthcoming challenges in the multi-year implementation program at your financial institution.
