Risk and Regulation

Risk and Regulation


This course covers the significant features of the regulatory environment that are most important to the risk management of financial institutions. An overview of the structure of modern financial institutions and the markets in which they exist will precede a review of the institutional regulatory framework in which they operate. This will include a discussion of the important regulatory bodies, such as the Federal Reserve, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Financial Services Authority (FSA), and the Bank for International Settlements (BIS). Major regulations and their implications for risk management will be covered with particular attention to Basel II. In addition, important accounting and tax-related issues will be reviewed, where applicable.
