ICAAP: Pillar II Risk Management Framework

ICAAP: Pillar II Risk Management Framework


Under Pillar 2 of the Basel accord, a bank must have an Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (ICAAP) in place. ICAAP consists of internal procedures and systems that ensure that the investment firms and banks will possess adequate capital resources in the long term to cover all of its material risks. It involves the determination of economic capital as opposed to regulatory capital and is a process that is run in parallel to the regulatory capital requirement determination process.


Economic capital is the capital required to cover all risks that are estimated using internal risk models of the bank. ICAAP should be an integral part of the bank’s processes and must be embedded within the organization. Senior management and the Board of Directors (BOD) should be supportive and fully engaged in the process.





This course outlines the CIF’s responsibility to perform an internal capital adequacy assessment. It examines the process and methodology that will need to be performed while investigating the risk management framework which needs to be established according to Basel guidelines. It also looks the responsibilities of the different functions as regards the risk assessment and sets out the contents of the report that must be produced so as to satisfy CySEC’s requirement. Finally, it describes the process which CySEC undertakes to perform the SREP.
