FFIEC TO CONDUCT RISK MANAGEMENT PLANNING SEMINAR IN SEATTLE, MAY 16-17
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council will conduct
a Risk Management Planning seminar in Seattle, Washington, May 16-
17, 1995. This seminar is primarily intended for chief executive
officers of banks and thrifts and will discuss the steps in the
risk management process. The overall goal of the seminar is to
encourage top management to institute systems that facilitate bank-
wide risk management.
This program is being offered in response to the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act of 1989 (FIRREA) which specifies that the Council "develop and administer training seminars in risk management for its employees and the employees of insured financial institutions." Location of the 1-1/2-day seminar:
RISK MANAGEMENT PLANNING
-- Financial Strategy: The Big Picture
-- Managing the Risks of Derivatives
-- Integration of Rate Risk Management and Profitability Management
-- Strategies for Managing Credit Risk
-- Due Diligence Pays Big Dividends
-- Reducing the Risk of International Fraud and Money Laundering
-- Creating a Risk Management Organization
This program will feature industry executives who have established effective risk management systems in their institutions and leading consultants in the risk management field. A top regulatory official will address the group. Topics are subject to change.
The unique aspect of this seminar is emphasis on the risk management process itself in establishing a systematic approach to bank-wide risk management. Strategies include monitoring, controlling and reporting risk through appropriate levels of management to the board of directors. In order to have maximum impact on bank policies, it is suggested that attendance be limited to chief executive officers, directors, chief operating officers, chief financial officers and other bank-wide executive level officers of bank and thrift institutions. Outside directors are encouraged to attend.
The attached application form should be submitted for registration.
A photocopy of the application form may be used for additional
