Risk management in banking

Risk Management is crucial to the performance of a bank. Today more than ever before, the focus on risk management has become critical with volatile global markets, ever changing regulations and new financial products impacting the day-to-day decision making in a bank.

The InterB@nk 3, Risk Management Simulation Program is a practical learning tool used to identify, analyze and mitigate risk in commercial banks. The simulation exposes participants to the major risks faced by banks in today's volatile environment and provides them with the opportunity to identify and analyze these risks. In trying to manage several financial risks during a specific economic environment, participants gain an enhanced understanding of what actions are taken by banks to limit potential impact on the profitability as well as the value of the equity of their bank.

This program is designed for those who interface with risk management disciplines on a regular basis, and want to understand fundamental risk management methods and practices. During the management of their bank participants have to interpret risk management information and reports, make critical assessments, and evaluate the implications and the limitations of their decisions on the financial results of their bank.
