Macro Prudential Supervision

Macro Prudential Supervision

1-2 December 2014 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands

In response to the global financial crisis, Macro-prudential supervision is an emerging field aiming to create a stable banking system through instruments such as Systemic Risk Buffers and Loan-To Value Ratios. How will De Nederlandsche Bank and the European Central Bank apply these instruments, and which trade-offs will they make in their decision-making? In this course, you’ll learn about the key practices of macro-prudential supervision. Leading practitioners and academics who are familiar with the key instruments in both the Netherlands and in Europe will give you a deeper insight into the theory and practice of macro-prudential supervision in smoothing the financial cycle (the time dimension) and strengthening the resilience of the financial system (the structural dimension). This course is for professionals in banking, consulting, as well as those working in central banks and ministries of finance who want to deepen their understanding of how macro-prudential supervision can contribute to a stable banking system. Typical roles include: regulatory managers, risk and ALM managers, corporate strategists, corporate affairs professionals, and line managers.
