Introduction

All structured learning has a theoretical base but research and experience has taught us that practical learning is easier as information is more quickly absorbed and applied in the workplace. Working in association with our partner SimArch, we offer a range of simulated banking and financial work situations which have been tested and proven to be of significant benefit to participants. Our ‘real-life’ simulations are based on the integration of research, mathematical probabilities and actual scenarios. The positive outcomes of the experience are motivated individuals with improved skills who go back into the workplace inspired and re-energised. The simulations are offered as public workshops, or can be run in-house, tailored to your needs.

ALM

This comprehensive workshop will give delegates a thorough understanding of managing interest rate and liquidity risk.

This comprehensive workshop will give delegates a thorough understanding of managing interest rate and liquidity risk and exploring best practice in risk reporting, contingency planning and regulatory compliance.

This course explores the issues and challenges of Asset and Liability Management for bank risk managers, auditors, and regulators. The course emphasises practical advantages and disadvantages of risk measurement and management tools and techniques, using samples of best practice risk reports.

The workshop combines theoretical training in many of the specific ALM concepts involved with a hands-on application via an internet-based simulator. This simulator, designed by our partner SimArch, is one of the most advanced and comprehensive available anywhere in the world and has been used by a large number of internationally renowned banks. The ALM simulation program used is called GuardB@nk 3, which depicts a full-services bank operating within a competitive environment.

Basic knowledge in risk management, control and statistics is required. Active participation in the class is necessary to benefit from the full value of this programme.

Banking Management

The FirstB@nk 3 Bank Management Simulation Program.

The FirstB@nk 3 Bank Management Simulation Program is specifically designed to provide personnel within the Financial Services Sector with a solid understanding of the business of banking. The simulation program provides a powerful and engaging learning experience set in the context of a realistic and current banking environment. Banking personnel develop new skills and insights into what it takes to manage a commercial bank successfully in today’s competitive and volatile marketplace.

Basel

This course provides a detailed overview of the history of the Basel Accords and how they evolved from 1998 to what became known as Basel II.

It describes the regulatory tools that are available in Basel II and the risks that are covered and not covered, while also explaining the ICAAP and capital management. Following this detailed overview, the course focuses on the financial crisis and how Basel II’s weaknesses were highlighted as a result, and what regulators planned in response, i.e. Basel III. The workshop combines theoretical training with a hands-on application via an internet-based simulator. This simulator, designed by our partner SimArch, is one of the most advanced and comprehensive available anywhere in the world and has been used by a large number of internationally renowned banks. The Risk simulation program used is called InterB@nk 3, which is designed to enhance the business acumen of personnel involved in financial risk management within commercial banks. The simulation exposes participants to the major risks faced by banks in today’s volatile environment and provides them the opportunity to identify and analyse these risks. Participants gain a better understanding of what actions are taken in order to mitigate risks.

UNIQUE FEATURES

Of Our Banking Simulations

Flexible Designs

With over 200 variable parameters in each simulation, these can be easily adapted to suit a specific country and the client’s specific requirements.

Delivery

All simulations can be run online, embedded into an existing training program, run as a stand-alone workshop or online self-study tool.

Technology

Our simulations are available 24/7 and support multiple browsers and devices.

Practical

We firmly believe that people learn best by doing our banking simulations enable people to directly apply new knowledge, insights and skills in realistic and relevant workplace scenarios. This inspires new ways of thinking, builds critical capabilities and enhances job efficiency.

Engaging

All our banking simulations are developed around real life banking scenarios that provide an engaging learning experience in which participants are immersed into a real environment where they are required to make important decisions and analyse the impact of these decisions to deliver success in each quarter.
