Basel IV / CRD V / CRR II

Basel IV encompasses more than just finalising Basel III – The implementation of CRR II/ CRR III/ CRD V (Basel IV) in the EU represents one of the biggest challenges for financial institutions in the coming years. The introduction of new rules concerning the calculation of risk-weighted assets and thus the capital ratios of all banks will have fundamental impact on the development of banks' strategies and shape their business models of the future.

Strategic, structural and operational adjustments are likely to be required. Indeed, optimised implementation of all changes related to Basel IV at the right time requires a detailed knowledge and an in-depth understanding of the reforms.

Regulatory change is a complex challenge that can only be addressed with a coherent and comprehensive approach. However, despite complexity and uncertainty, there are practical and concrete actions that can be taken now to prepare for a Basel IV world.

This training course is designed as an essential step to grasping Basel IV’s full implications. It will be based around some level of theory but also around case studies. The training will also integrate a significant amount of market feedback and insight.
