Calling on 30 years of risk management experience, Charles helps organizations make more informed credit and risk management decisions. Charles joined Moody’s KMV in early 2006 from Barclays Bank PLC, where he worked in various capacities during his 28-year career there.
Drawing on his knowledge of both theory and also the realities of day-to-day practice, Charles has used his extensive risk management experience and his familiarity with many of the challenges associated with commercial and corporate banking to help financial institutions around the world with the development of their risk management planning and strategies.
Ask the senior management of a bank what they regard as the most important aspect of Enterprise Risk Management (‘ERM') and the chances are they will tell you it is the ability to have a holistic view of the risks being run by the organization. Their perspective is typically a top-down view and seldom do they think of it in terms of the core bottom-up enabler for ERM data. Why? Because data is a given and we live with what is available.
In recent years, banks have invested in enterprise risk management (ERM), but have these investments been smart, operationally efficient and effective? The answer to this depends on whether they believe being operationally efficient is an unrealistic utopia, or whether they see it as a key building block for best practice ERM, and therefore a strategic imperative. This article attempts to explain these two positions by outlining current drivers pushing banks toward more effective ERM investment.
With regulators pushing for investment in stress testing, this is an opportunity for many bankers to change the way the business does its bottom-up planning, monitoring, and control. We look at the questions: Did regulators invent stress testing for banks, or has the banking community always undertaken it?
Embedding the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) Risk Data Aggregation and Reporting Principles Across the Organization
This paper considers the 14 Risk Data Aggregation and Reporting Principles recently described by the Basel Committee for Banking Supervision and assesses their associated costs and benefits. In addition, it explores the benefits of embedding the Principles in two contexts: corporate credit origination and overall enterprise-wide risk management.
The presentation gives a summary of the key changes under Basel III and their impact. It then drills down on best practices in Enterprise Risk Management, and then concludes linking to Pillar II, ICAAP and Economic Capital Management
This presentation includes liquidity risk and stress testing, differences between liquidity management and liquidity risk and Pillar III and liquidity risk.
