POST CONFERENCE TECHNICAL MASTERCLASSES Wednesday 9 April 2014 Our post-conference technical masterclasses are run in small groups so that each participant gets one-to-one attention and has the opportunity to raise questions and get an in-depth understanding of how to develop and implement complex risk frameworks in the Middle East Masterclass A Seminar A runs from 08.30 – 12.30, with lunch served afterwards. Registration begins at 08.00 Integrated Approach To Stress Testing: Examining leading practices for developing and applying stress testing to achieve strategic objectives in the region Globally, evolving regulatory and market environments have heightened attention on strengthening stresstesting strategies, systems and procedures. Stress testing as a tool is becoming more and more valuable to help financial institutions steer their businesses through a highly volatile economic landscape. This half day workshop is designed specifically to create solutions for developing, implementing and integrating stress testing at the group level of your organisation by: Raising the consciouness about the difference between stress testing and scenario analysis, VaR and other measures for credit, market and liquidity risks Developing enterprise-wide integrated framework that aggregates stress scenarios across all asset classes Assessing available modeling approaches and techniques Evaluating models’ key parameters, data requirements, granularity of input and output parameters Masterclass B Suggesting potential solutions for difficulties in finding, extracting and aggregating data, designing plausible but realistic scenarios as well as keeping resources, time and costs in check Giving recommendations for setting scenarios across countries and business units as well as calculating the effect for each portfolio/business line, and increasing the variety of scenarios to reflect potential risk across risk types and geographies Creating management reports based on stress testing and incorporating into decisions on strategic areas including risk management, capital allocation and planning, risk appetite, business unit planning Featuring real-life case studies involving stress testing Alexander Denev, Co-author of “Portfolio Management Under Stress”and Senior Team Lead, Risk Models, RBS, UK Seminar B runs from 13.30 – 17.30, Registration begins at 12.30 Operational Risk: An integrated approach to and practical strategies for measuring, managing, modeling and embedding operational risk for drive informed decision making Unlike other risks, the definition of operational risk given by Basel II only represents a potential loss, making the real benefits of its management difficult to demonstrate. Additionally, staff and systems are considered to be the causes of operational losses and are not seen to be best placed to measure and manage this risk, resulting in the lack of a universal methodology for managing operational risk. This workshop is designed to deliver real life solutions to key challenges faced with operational risk by: Identifying core concepts involved in the Three Pillar Framework and Basel III for allocation of capital to operations risk Comparing and contrasting Basel III measurement methodologies for operations risk including Basic Indicator Approach, Standardised Approach and Advanced Measurement Approach (AMA) Evaluating the relative merits of operational risk measurement techniques including Loss Distribution Approach, Scenario Analysis, Risk Control Self Assessment (CRSA), Key Risk Indicators (KRI) for Operational Risk Management (ORM) Working out and implementing a core theoretical quantitative/qualitative mix of statistical and business process management methods for the management of operations risk in a financial institution Comparing and contrasting advantages and challenges of Basel III implementation Practical session: Framing solutions for real-life case studies involving operations risk Michael Sicsic, Group Operational Risk Director, Aviva Plc, UK See www.iirme.com/risk2014 for full workshop leaders biographies
