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 to 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.

- Understand the degree of impact each regulation has
- Understand the overall impact of the regulations on their business model
