Risk management is something we do in the bank every day. You are intimately familiar with it because you do it, right? But as the saying goes, "you don't have to be dead to sell grave plots." Well, just because you "do" risk management doesn't mean you really understand what risk management entails, how to do it best, and how to make it serve the needs of your bank. If you have asked any of these questions, this webinar is for you--
  • What is risk management supposed to accomplish?
  • Why have a risk management program?
  • What is risk management and why should I care?
  • How should different risk management programs tie together?
  • How do I get started?
  • What should my program look like?
  • What if something changes?
In this first of a series of webinars on risk management we will explore those questions, plus:
  • The concept of what risk management is
  • How to apply the necessary principles of risk management
  • Why it must be employed properly
  • What your regulators expect from you
Your management structure must adequately identify, measure, monitor, and control the risks involved in your day-to-day application of the various products and services you offer. While the board of directors has the ultimate responsibility for what happens in the bank, risk management systems provide guidance so that even the most distant branches can manage the scope of their activities in a manner reflective of the board's intent.

In this two-hour webinar we will help you establish a solid foundation so that you can assure your board and examiners that your risk management program recognizes the risks you face which are unique to your bank, that you control the risk exposure you have and that management is doing what is necessary to sustain a safe and sound bank.

We will review the basic requirements of your program to include the following types of risk:
  • Credit
  • Country/transfer
  • Market
  • Liquidity
  • Operational
  • Legal, and
  • Reputational
We'll help you understand how the elements of your own risk management program work with senior management and the board and the policies and procedures they approve to provide a cost-effective system that is integrated seamlessly into your daily work.
