Basel III

Basel III and European Capital Requirements Directive
Training Course

The training course aims to give practitioners from banks an overview of the Basel Capital Accord and the CRD including changes as a reaction to the financial crisis. We describe a rather complex set of regulation in a way that the principles and main drivers are transparent and easy to understand. Furthermore, we provide an overview on internal models and point out business implications and new opportunities beside the road.
