The Basel Committee published the “final chapter” of Basel III in December 2017, which means banks can proceed with fully informed capital planning accordingly – now is the time to review your  Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (ICAAP) to maximise process effectiveness and efficiency. This workshop will demonstrate practical steps needed to implement an efficient capital adequacy assessment process.

This workshop is scheduled to repeat on the following dates: 19 March / 23 May / 16 September


The ICAAP is a time-consuming and resource-intensive process, and one that is important to undertake efficiently and effectively. This workshop delves deep into best-practice principles and draws out the main pointers and processes necessary to ensure efficient ICAAP results, as well assist with delivering an optimised balance sheet management and capital planning strategy. It is appropriate to every banking institution, irrespective of size or business model.


The workshop is fully interactive and makes extensive use of case studies and real-world examples to demonstrate principles of effective ICAAP implementation. Delegates will take part in group exercises to help reinforce learning outcomes.

By the end of this workshop you will be able to:

  • Operate an efficient and optimised ICAAP process that benefits the entire bank
  • Obtain presentable results sooner and with greater effectiveness
  • Transfer knowledge bank-wide on “What makes a good ICAAP?”
  • Manage the balance sheet efficiently to account for new capital regulations such as Leverage Ratio
  • Incorporate latest RWA changes into origination strategy to maintain effective balance sheet management
