Muscat International Forum for Risk Management in Banks and Financial Institutions

20 – 21 May 2024, Crowne plaza – Qurum Muscat – Sultanate of Oman


The global financial markets are still affected by the risk of rising interest rates, inflationary pressures, liquidity shortages, and sharp energy price fluctuations due to the current events in east Europe and the Middle East, in addition to the uncertainty stemming from the failures of some major banks in the United States and Europe in 2023.

Undoubtedly, these developments will have a ripple effect on the Arab banks, increasing the risks they face. This necessitates action from various stakeholders to cope with these risks and mitigate them, in order to maintain the safety and soundness of banks.

Furthermore, the world’s innovations, especially artificial intelligence (AI) and its applications in the banking industry, along with the latest social responsibility and governance in banks to address climate change risks (ESG), pose additional challenges on banks risk management, regulatory bodies, and supervisory authorities as well.

All these issues will be discussed in detail in this forum, which will shape a brainstorming platform gathering senior officials from international and local regulatory and supervisory bodies, as well as risk management heads in Arab and Gulf banks in particular.

Importance of the Forum:

The significance of convening this Risk professionals forum, organized by the Union of Arab Banks (UAB) in collaboration with the Central Bank of Oman in its second edition, stems from the importance of the issues to be discussed and the quality and level of local, Arab, and international speakers.
The forum aims to facilitate the exchange of experiences and knowledge among these elites and participants to enhance the culture of modern risk management among Arab bankers, and to understand the latest regulatory requirements in this important and sensitive field amidst the geopolitical developments affecting the region and the risks they entail.
