Target Audience:

Mid-level bank supervisors.


Participants should have experience with banking supervision-either on-site or off-site banking supervision- and comfortable with fundamental analytical techniques.

Course Description:

This one-week course, presented by the IMF's Monetary and Capital Markets Department, focuses on the fundamentals and goals of RBS while discussing and addressing some of its shortcomings. In the aftermath of the global financial crisis, risk-based supervision (RBS), as well as Basel II, came under criticism. The course combines both lectures and practical applications and seeks to balance the discussion of technical, financial modeling techniques with that of less analytical bank supervision techniques. The first day of the course covers the different concepts of RBS and discusses the different approaches taken under its guise. The three middle days address FX, interest rate, and operational risk assessment and stress testing techniques, respectively. The final day, as well as some short sessions inserted in previous days, discusses combining information for constructing supervisory scores and resource allocation for supervisory monitoring.
