Bank Capital Adequacy Under Basel III

The overall goal of this two-day course is to provide participants with a general overview of current financial regulation under the Basel Accords. We achieve this by a combination of theory and practice, including case studies from financial institutions, as well as reviewing the actual regulatory documents from the Basel Committee for Banking Supervision (BCBS), the European Banking Authority (EBA), the EU Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR) and Capital Requirements Directive IV (CRD IV).
