9 – 11/12/2018 Manama – Kingdom of Bahrain
I. Workshop Outlines:
A thorough and comprehensive capital planning mechanism is a vital component of a strong risk management program. This mechanism should produce a level of capital adequate to support the nature and level of the bank’s risk profile, and it is the role of the supervisor to evaluate the sufficiency of the bank’s internal assessment and to intervene where appropriate.
Recovery planning is another pillar of a comprehensive Risk Management program, it is important for all banks as it increases their resilience to stress scenarios. Recovery planning will naturally reflect the size and complexity of banks and should be proportionate to the risk profile of each institution.
Banks should develop recovery plans that identify credible options to survive a range of severe but plausible stressed scenarios. This should be part of the good management of a bank, not just a response to a regulatory requirement.
This workshop highlights the interaction between Basel III new capital buffers and the implementation of the Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (ICAAP) and the Recovery planning. It will present the current work of regulators and banks in strengthening the implementation of capital planning process including ICAAP and the roles and responsibilities of Banks to develop a sound Recovery plan.
