Bank Capital Adequacy Under Basel III and CRD IV & V Training Course

A two-day course

  • Redcliffe has been established for over 20 years and we are proud of our reputation for delivering excellent training in risk and compliance.
  • We are pleased to have been appointed Master Trainers in risk training by two of the world’s largest banks.
  • We have also delivered this topic to the IFC, World Bank, ECA’s and a host of small and medium-sized institutions. As such we have a very clear idea of how market players of all sizes are dealing with this ever-changing regulatory framework
  • We do not use academics or a textbook approach. The course director is a former chief risk officer with considerable hands-on vocational experience. He will share his experiences, both good and bad, to bring the training to life and make it more relevant.
  • The course uses lots of practical examples and case studies to illustrate the learning points. Our aim is to assist delegates to “hit the ground running” the following completion of the workshop.
  • This can be a complex subject with some of the requirements appearing to be either challenging or difficult to understand. We will avoid this pitfall by explaining all aspects of the requirements in a simple and easy to comprehend manner taking time, if necessary, to build delegate understanding in clear stages.
  • We are always judged by our results and to date, delegate feedback has always been excellent
