Risk Management Track

Summer 2024


The risk environment for consumer credit and small business finance in emerging markets has taken a sharp turn. The pandemic crisis has left many borrowers with excess debt at a time when liquidity assistance is being scaled back and special regulatory accommodations are withdrawn. This is now compounded by escalating geopolitical tensions, a commodities price shock and new concerns over the global economic outlook. Climate risks, accelerating digital competition, rising interest rates and volatile exchange rates all present additional challenges that risk managers need to address proactively.


In this track, participants will work with the models that help tackle many of these challenges. We will explore the evolving risk landscape for emerging market banks, including credit risk and the asset-liability management exposures related to liquidity, market interest rates and foreign exchange rates. After setting up the 360° enterprise risk perspective, we will take a deep dive into arrears management and statistical credit scoring.  


The agenda is packed full of interactive sessions with seasoned industry experts, networking sessions as well as entertainment and external site visits.*


Site Visit

On the afternoon of Wednesday 5 July, participants will get the chance to visit a German instituion for an external site visit. The site visit offers a more practical perspective on some of the industry's most pressing challenges.

Trend Elective

The trend elective opens up the whole Summer Academy for all participants. Perhaps you've always been fascinated by cyber security, or the topic of loss and damage is particularly relevant for you and your instituion. The trend elective morning will also allow you to meet and engage with other participants from other disciplines.
