Stress Testing Challenges Among Key Issues Being Discussed
Wolters Kluwer Financial Services today announced that two of its leading subject matter experts will provide best practices on how to manage some of the increasingly complex regulatory and risk management challenges at the 21 st annual RiskMinds International, one of the largest risk management conferences in the world. RiskMinds International takes place at the Hotel Okura Amsterdam from Dec. 8-12.
On Wednesday, Dec. 10, Wolters Kluwer Financial Services is participating in two master classes. Nancy Masschelein, vice president and head of Risk & Finance, EMEA, will be speaking at the conference in the Capital, Liquidity and Funding stream. During her presentation, Masschelein will discuss:
- The evolving role of the treasury department in regard to liquidity risk management and FTP governance
- Increasing regulatory pressure, including Basel III and hedge accounting
- Challenges related to stress testing needs
In support of Masschelein’s discussion of stress testing challenges, Wolters Kluwer Financial Services recently released a white paper and comment piece discussing trends and best practices for continuous, integrated stress testing.
In addition, Richard Pike, vice president of market management, EMEA, Risk and Compliance at Wolters Kluwer Financial Services, will once again chair the Operational Risk master class, focusing on modern operational risk management.
“The RiskMinds International Conference is a valuable forum to help risk management professionals create a more unified approach to risk management and become more forward-thinking about its continual evolution,” said Masschelein. “Wolters Kluwer Financial Services’ presence during this conference underscores how critical we believe risk management will continue to be in the sustainability of businesses.”
RiskMinds International brings together more than 600 risk professionals annually, with experts travelling from over 33 countries to attend. Over the three-day conference, over 150 expert risk practitioners from various banking institutions will share their insights and experiences on how risk management and models have changed as a result of the new economic and regulatory environment.
