The recent financial crisis triggered countless regulatory changes that continue to challenge the

Advisor in the Supervisory
Policy Division, Directorate
General Micro-Prudential

A SEPARATELY BOOKABLE
WORKSHOP LED BY
INDUSTRY EXPERTS
Dear Executive,
FULL DAY PRE
CONFERENCE
WORKSHOP:
Challenges and
opportunities in shaping
a strong risk and control
culture in banks
For banks, the post-crisis years continue to be plagued by
uncertainty. In the markets, the decisions of finance ministers
and central bankers have become one of the key determinants of
price; in the field of bank strategy, meanwhile, everything hinges
on still-evolving regulatory policy.

The questions facing the industry range from the calibration of
the international leverage ratio and the methodology on which
it will be based, to the design of a system of capital floors that
could slash the benefits offered by existing regulatory capital
models. In Europe, banks could still face structural separation,
with investment banking units being fenced off from traditional
consumer and commercial banking; in the US, regulators are
considering a capital surcharge for banks that rely heavily on
wholesale funding.
That’s just part of it – other ongoing projects include attempts to
agree a capital framework for interest rate risk in the banking book
(IRRBB), and an ambitious overhaul of trading book capital rules.
Putting it mildly, these still-pending verdicts make life difficult for
banks to work out where to allocate their resources – and that has
knock-on effects for every other market participant.
Bank Risk 2015 will try to remove some of the uncertainty,
showing you how your peers are approaching these issues, and
giving you insight into how the industry will continue changing.
Speakers include the chief risk officers at UniCredit, Groupe
BPCE and Ulster Bank, as well as senior risk and regulatory
specialists from BNP Paribas, Citi, Deutsche Bank, and UBS.
The keynote speaker is a microprudential specialist from the
European Central Bank.
You will have the chance to put questions to the speakers
following each discussion or presentation, and to network
with fellow delegates during breaks and at the closing cocktail
reception – it is an unrivalled chance to learn from the rest of the
industry, to test your expectations and plans, and to refine your
approach as the banking landscape continues to evolve.
I look forward to welcoming you to the event in April.
Yours faithfully,
Duncan Wood
