Course Summary:

This course will provide an intensive in-depth instruction in the requirements of the first, second and third Capital Requirements Directives (and of the Banking Consolidation Directive) as they have been transposed into Irish law and as they affect investment firms. Featuring worked examples and walking through an entire quarterly filing, the course demonstrates how to make submissions for both simple firms and complex firms with a trading book. The course also considers how to carry out the Pillar 2 ICAAP process and covers the Pillar 3 required public disclosures.

The course will cover what you need to do to calculate your capital requirements and complete an automated filing.


Important: This course is delivered by practising Irish professionals for Irish senior management and professionals.  Like all our courses, we will examine CRD issues from an Irish perspective. We do not adopt the ‘cut and paste’ approach favoured by overseas based training providers operating in Ireland. We act for many firms with MiFID authorisation and we will share our experiences of the Financial Regulator’s CRD requirements with attendees.
