Basel III and Risk Management Course Overview

Banking regulations are the fundamental pillar supporting stability, fairness, and trust in our financial systems. They aim to prevent reckless behavior by banks and ensure that individual customers and the broader economy are shielded from unnecessary risks.

And, to a great extent, banking regulations directly impact how banks manage all the risks they encounter as they provide their vast array of products and services to their customers.

Basel III is a global regulatory framework adopted by regulators all over the world. As such, it remains the most influential regulatory framework for banks, hugely impacting the ways banks manage their risks.

Any banking role within risk management will be impacted by the requirements of Basel III. Therefore, it is crucial for risk management professionals, both present and future, to have a sound grasp of the objectives of this framework, along with the key capital, leverage, and liquidity requirements.
