Finance Training Course – Course Outline – Economic Capital, Limit Management & Basel II: Application and Practice

The Economic Capital debate triggered by Basel II requires a mind shift that needs to flows all the way down to current limit management frameworks. Simply extending the existing structure does not lead to full compliance or value creation. The objective is to introduce active capital management and monitoring tools and apply them in a local market setting in line with the Basel II guidelines.
