Effective Board Oversight of ICAAP and ILAAP

Date: On a date of your choice
Location: Delivered as an interactive briefing
Event Code: EBOII

Course Details

If you are on the Board of a regulated bank or investment firm captured by CRD4 then you are responsible for reviewing and challenging the adequacy of risk management and financial resources.

This can be a daunting prospect whatever professional background you have. This is a unique opportunity to hear one of the architects of the pillar 2 framework who will walk you through the key components of ICAAP and ILAAP to de-mystify terminology and the calculations as well as giving examples of good and bad practice and how to handle discussions with the regulator.

The Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (ICAAP) and Internal liquidity adequacy assessment process (ILAAP) are key components of this and it is important that Board members can provide robust levels of challenge.

For a Chair of the Risk Committee, this could include being interviewed by the regulator as part of their Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process (SREP).
