    Course Description

    This virtual course, presented by the Monetary and Capital Markets Department, presents the fundamentals and goals of risk-based supervision (RBS) of the banking sector, challenges for RBS supervision, and factors central to its success. Through a mix of lectures and practical applications, the course covers the main RBS components and steps for effective implementation. It balances discussions of the risk-based approach of banking regulation and supervision, and supervisory techniques aimed at assessing the risk profile of banks on an individual basis. The course begins by introducing the RBS conceptual approach in prudential regulation and supervisory processes applicable to the banking sector. The focus then turns to assessment methodology of governance and risk management frameworks of credit, liquidity, market, and operational risks, with concrete illustration from bank-rating models used by supervisors. Finally, the course discusses challenges for effective implementation of a global RBS framework, and provides high-level guidance on how to leverage on risk rating and assessment in view of deciding relevant supervisory priorities and efficient allocation of supervisory resources. Interactive Q&A take place at the end of each session, and case studies are developed to illustrate the risk-based approach of banking supervision in several risk domains.
