As banks strive for value creation in a highly competitive environment, they inevitably create risks. The greatest threat to a financial institution is when such risks are not properly identified, measured or managed. In these circumstances the result is invariably unexpected losses, which, as the financial crisis demonstrates, can threaten the very existence of banks of all sizes. This internal audit course will focus on the use of the risk based approach being applied to these business areas. Delegates will develop audit programmes during the course of the training event which will be of benefit to their firms in practice.


This course examines the latest tools, techniques and best practices surrounding economic capital calculation and management and how to structure an Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (ICAAP) that maximizes its inherent motivational incentives. It considers the Basel accords, with particular focus on Basel II and III, and examines the audit approaches for compliance with the differing requirements.
