The 9th Annual Risk Management Forum in Arab Banks

BACKGROUND:

In response to the Global Financial Crisis (GFC), the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) introduced a comprehensive and wide-ranging strengthening of global bank standards, most notably through the Basel III framework.

The ultimate objective of this framework is to ensure minimum standards of resilience so that financial firms are less likely to fail, and to reduce the impact on the financial system and the economy in case they do.

Most Supervisory authorities in the Arab region have taken significant actions to adopt to Basel III, and other actions are still to be taken. So, what remains of the regulatory reform agenda in the Arab region? And what more can be done toward achieving the objectives of post crisis reform.

The 9th meeting of Chief Risk Officers and Risk managers in the Arab region will discuss current priorities of Risk Management for Arab banks and will provide a platform for professional dialogue among Risk practitioners.

 OBJECTIVES:

 This Forum addresses the key challenges that Arab banks face. A good understanding of how banks incur and manage risks provides the background to the more efficient ways that should be used to mitigate each type of Risk.

This Forum will also define major international and regional initiatives in light of the global financial crisis, especially the implementation of the Basel III package of regulatory reforms, and it will present some regional reform programs and future work to strengthen the resilience of banks in the Arab region, by an elite group of experts from Basel Committee and Lebanon, the Arab region and some specialized international institutions.
