Operational Issues in Consolidated, Cross-border, and Risk-based Supervision

Workshop: April 11 – 13, 2018ILjubljana, SloveniaIApplication deadline: March 23, 2018ICentral Banking

This initiative is part of our efforts to support capacity development in the area of banking supervision. We support countries’ efforts to align with international standards and guidelines in prudential regulation and supervision.

Due to the internationalization of banks operations the supervisors need to take into account the total activities abroad and to successfully examine their soundness. The consolidation of the banking supervision should not only incorporate banks’ foreign branches, but also those of banks’ wholly-owned and majority-owned foreign subsidiaries. Foreign subsidiaries, participations, and joint ventures are to be observed. Those are independent from their banks and are subject to another legal environment.

Risk-based supervision has become a very important aspect in the supervision of banks. We can now also closely examine lessons learned since the establishment of the Single Supervisory Mechanism and its risk-based approach, aiming at assessing risks and risk management processes at credit institutions. This implies a comprehensive program of continuous analysis of the key risks at all credit institutions through on-going supervision and on-site inspections. In the workshop we will discuss in-depth investigations of risks, risk controls and governance, with a pre-defined scope and time frame at the premises of a credit institution.

Within the scope of risk-based supervision, the authorities are focusing aspects such as evaluating banks’ own credit risk management, stress testing and risk-based internal audit, home-host cooperation. Supervisory processes are to be reviews in order to function effectively. To evaluate the requirements imposed to banks and improving their governance and risk-management, the supervisors themselves need a framework for assessment.

What will you learn?

Topics to be discussed at the workshop:

  • Scope of the SSM and Banking Union
  • Work in supervisory colleges on the case of SSM Joint Supervisory Teams
  • Organizational aspects and framework for performance of on-site inspections
  • CRD IV

  • Supervisory approach and assessment of internal capital and liquidity adequacy assessment processes

Who should attend?

The seminar is designed for employees from banking regulation and supervision departments from central banks and financial supervisory authorities. Participants are encouraged to actively intervene in the discussion, raising practical questions and offering insight of relevance to their country cases.
