The aftershocks from the credit crisis, continued problems with impairments, slow economic growth, the pressure on bank capital and liquidity, and new rules and regulations, have all combined to make bank management significantly more difficult.
Basel III – the new system for determining the level of banks’ capital and liquidity –creates a much more challenging environment for banks to operate within, and it is getting more difficult every year as the minimum requirements are raised step-by-step.
ACF’s Global Banker simulation features a full implementation of the new BIS liquidity and capital measures, allowing delegates to experience at first-hand how they work in a completely realistic environment. The results are surprising – Basel III will potentially cut bank profitability by almost 40%.
Never before has it been so important for bankers – at all levels and in all roles – to understand the complexities of banking in the 21st century, to be aware of how their role fits in, to comprehend the big picture, and to identify problems before they become serious.
The Strategic Bank Management seminar does just that. Using ACF’s sophisticated Global Banker simulation within a realistic and detailed scenario, the seminar shows delegates how to develop effective solutions to today’s problems and strategies to ensure that their bank maintains profitability.
"I enjoyed the references to newspaper articles. The descriptions of CDO/SIV liquidity issues was VERY interesting and pertinent - I think I have a much better understanding of the whole credit crunch right now."
