The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has issued for a package of proposals to strengthen global capital and liquidity regulations with the goal of promoting a more resilient banking sector. The objective of the Basel Committee's reform package is to improve the banking sector's ability to absorb shocks arising from financial and economic stress, whatever the source, thus reducing the risk of spill over from the financial sector to the real economy. This training is compulsory for banking players to maintain their operational relevance in national and the global space.
This training requires an understanding of statistical notions, and financial mathematics, as well as a fair knowledge of the financial instruments mentioned in the course (underlying, options).
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
