OCC slates workshops on risk governance, capital markets next month in NC

Two workshops – one on risk governance and the other on capital markets – are scheduled Sept. 19-20 in Charlotte, N.C., for directors, senior management and other key banking executives, the national bank regulator said Thursday.

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) said its Sept. 19 “Risk Governance: Improving Effectiveness” workshop will include lectures, discussion, and exercises to provide practical information for participants to effectively identify, measure, monitor, and control risk. It will also address the OCC’s approach to risk-based supervision and major risks in the financial industry. Cost to attend is $99; participants will receive course materials, supervisory materials, and lunch.

The Sept. 20 “Capital Markets: Keeping Current” workshop, which is a half-day session, is to help bank leadership better understand balance sheet management risks such as interest rate risk, liquidity risk, and risks associated with the investment portfolio. Discussion will also focus on quantifying balance sheet risk related to assets and liabilities, the OCC said. Cost to attend is $49; the fee is waived for those also attending the Sept. 19 workshop.
