CSBS Offering Capital Markets Examiner School
CSBS now offers a course designed to enhance examiner knowledge of capital markets and improve examination skills.
CSBS will be hosting the Capital Markets Examiner School on May 7-11 in San Diego California. The School is designed to provide attendees an intermediate level course utilizing both instructor lectures and in-depth group discussions. Attendees will explore the technical and practical application of risk identification for community banks, mid-sized banks, and large banking organizations.
"I gained a clear understanding of bank strategies in the formation of balance sheet structure, approaches bank’s will take to mitigate risk, and the importance of size and complexity when evaluating an institution," said Alex Dinges, bank examinations specialist for the Alabama Banking Department. "The course effectively explained the importance of SWAPS/Derivatives and balance sheet hedging in a clear and concise manner. The case studies allowed me to take a deeper dive into bank strategies and get away from just relying on ratios. The course is also very interactive, as instructors stray away from a lecture approach and offer open discussions about real life situations. I would recommend this course to anyone who has been an EIC and is looking for a better understanding of capital markets and the importance of balance sheet structure."
Topics will include balance sheet structure, yield curve analysis, the investment portfolio, liquidity, and interest rate risk, with discussions of relevant regulatory guidance, risk management practices and specific practical examples.
