Course Description:

This course, presented by the IMF Monetary and Capital Markets Department, presents the fundamentals and goals of risk-based supervision (RBS), its challenges, and factors central to its success. Through a mix of lectures and practical applications the course covers the main RBS components and steps for putting it in place. It balances discussions of technical financial modeling, and less analytical bank supervision techniques.

Finally, the course discusses how to combine information for constructing supervisory scores, developing supervision plans, and allocating supervision resources and activities.

Course Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
  • Describe the main components of RBS and why they are important for effective supervision.
  • Identify a variety of banking risks and evaluate their impact on the bank's risk profile.
  • Apply RBS tools and concepts in drafting supervision plans and performing supervisory activities.
