This course is designed to identify the most important aspects of bank risk management processes and show how senior executives are central both to the construction of an appropriate framework and to the leadership that generates a risk management culture. Note that the course is emphatically not a detailed description of individual risk management issues; as a senior executive, you may be comfortable with most of these issues already. The approach in this course is to provide an overview of where the key risks arise and the core management issues contained in these risks.


This online course forms part of the Intuition short course suite.

  • What the key roles and responsibilities of senior executives are in ensuring that an institution conducts its business in accordance with the appropriate risk tolerance parameters
  • How the viewpoint of regulators often contrasts with that of banks, and places an increasing burden on banks and risk management teams
