Course Overview 

Knowledge of the Basel/CRD rules is essential for anyone working in the banking sector. This is however a significant challenge both due to their complexity and because they keep changing, thus making it imperative for professionals to ensure they always have updated knowledge.

The course covers the main changes introduced since the crisis by both Basel III (CRD IV and CRR) and so-called Basel IV (CRD V and CRRII) and other still-to-be-implemented measures. It also includes connected regulatory measures such as EMIR, the BRRD and SRMR and the revisions in these areas to give a comprehensive overview.

He has been training across a wide spectrum of cash instruments, derivatives, commodities and in risk management and regulation since 1999, at up to senior management level globally, his clients comprising mainly the top tier investment banks and fund managers, and is the author of a textbook on credit derivatives (Credit Derivatives Workbook, Euromoney, 2004).
