Two Day CCAR Course in NYC

April 19th & 20th, 2016 – In the years since the financial crisis, the primary risk oversight process utilized by the US regulators has been the Comprehensive Capital Adequacy & Review, known as CCAR. The Federal Reserve Bank administers these exercises on an annual basis. The 2015 CCAR examination involved 31 bank holding companies comprising 80% of total US domestic consolidated assets. While there has been significant improvement in the financial industry’s capital ratios from when the CCAR was first introduced in 2009 to the present, banks continue to encounter many changes especially on the qualitative dimensions, beyond just exceeding quantitative thresholds. Demonstrating the strength of the stress test systems infrastructure, data, reporting, and governance practices is essential for ensuring that the results themselves are credible. Many firms continue to have fragmented approaches to risk forecasting for CCAR purposes that are not fully linked to the budgeting and strategic planning process that drives business decisions and compensation practices. This course includes a high-level review of the CCAR, and dedicates significant attention to the vision of a best practice, sustainable, risk management culture meeting both regulatory and business optimization goals.
