The implementation of CRD IV in the UK and all other EU countries with effect from 1 January 2014 has made substantial changes both to prudential regulation and to reporting requirements.

All banks and building societies, as well as some investment firms, are subject to the requirements of CRD IV. There are significant differences in application depending on the nature, size and complexity of financial institutions.

This half-day workshop (1pm-5.30pm) provides an overview of the regulatory requirements and is targeted at small to medium sized regulated financial institutions.


After attending this workshop, participants will be able to have a high level understanding of:

  • The content and scope of the CRD IV rules and which rules are applicable to their firm and which are not;
  • The changes in the computation and assessment of capital adequacy;
  • The new liquidity adequacy requirements; and
  • Insight to how these rules work in practice through practical examples and case studies

Who should attend?

This half-day workshop is aimed at individuals in finance and compliance roles who are involved in, or responsible for, the assessment, computation, reporting and monitoring of capital and liquidity adequacy with respect to CRD IV. The workshop is most suitable for those who are taking on responsibilities in these areas for the first time or who work in a particular area and wish to acquire high level understanding of the other areas.
