Wolters Kluwer Financial Services is turning its attention to Austria this week, with two events planned in Vienna on April 21.
The first event will see the company’s experts address a local and European view of Austrian regulatory reporting. This will be immediately followed by an event organized by The Professional Risk Managers' International Association (PRMIA), sponsored by Wolters Kluwer Financial Services. The PRMIA event, which will feature insights from Nancy Masschelein, vice president of Market Management Risk and Finance, EMEA, will examine the increasing importance of managing model risk. Both events will be held at The Palais Hansen Kempinski Vienna.
Topics to be discussed at the first event include Austria’s Smart Cube reporting requirements, as well as updates on the European Banking Authority Regulatory Requirements, the Fundamental Review of the Trading Book, MiFID and a top level overview on IFRS9. Regulatory challenges regarding integrated risk management, stress testing, and liquidity risk are also on the agenda.
Wolters Kluwer Financial Services experts scheduled to appear in addition to Masschelein include Richard Bennett, head of Regulatory Reporting, EMEA; Patrick Snick, IFRS and Finance specialist; and Claus Schuster, the company’s Austrian reporting expert. Christian Lange, senior account manager for Germany, Austria and Switzerland, will also chair a question and answer session.
Wolters Kluwer Financial Services is also delighted to announce that the event will include guest speeches from Ernst & Young executives. Georg Fikar, senior manager EMEIA Financial Services at Ernst & Young and Heiner Klein, managing director at Ernst & Young will explore new reporting requirements for the documentation of internal control systems.
The PRMIA event, meanwhile, will see Masschelein share her observations about the concept of internal model development and model risk management. Among other areas she will review what regulators are saying about model risk and will assess the key components of an effective model risk management framework, including stress testing.
She will be joined by Edoardo Faletti, head of Risk Monitoring and Reporting at Banca Popolare di Milano, who will provide an operational view on model risk management.
Full details of the Austrian Regulatory Reporting Update event, and the PRMIA event, sponsored by Wolters Kluwer Financial Services, including registration instructions and the full agenda, are available on our website. Both events are free to attend and will provide plenty of networking opportunities.
