BRE is a 5-day program designed to provide an operational overview of FDIC's bank resolution processes in a format tailored for an international audience. FDIC experts will use lectures, exercises, and panels to discuss:

  • Post-failure activity, including asset sales, management, and professional liability investigations; and
  • FDIC's role in resolution planning for systemically important financial institutions.
By the end of the program, participants will be able to compare FDIC's approach to resolution to their own experiences.
