    Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to: - Measure the main bank risks (e.g., credit, market, funding) and use bank balance sheet indicators of financial soundness (e.g., asset quality, liquidity), such as IMF Financial Soundness Indicators, in assessing banking system risks. - Design and perform basic stress tests of solvency and liquidity and interpret the results. - Recognize the importance of nonbank financial intermediaries and their links to banks. - Assess macrofinancial linkages (e.g., the impact of business cycles on bank soundness), including the links between the financial sector, the government, and the real economy. - Track the buildup of systemic risk and vulnerabilities associated with credit, real estate prices, leverage, balance sheet mismatches, and interconnectedness. - Assess how shocks can amplify throughout the financial system, e.g., through adverse liquidity spirals - a new approach to financial regulation since the global financial crisis.
  • Objective:
    A priority is the assessment of the main risks facing both bank and nonbank financial institutions and their macroeconomic implications. The course explains how to detect a buildup of vulnerabilities that may threaten financial stability and contaminate other sectors of the economy. A combination of lectures and hands-on workshops allows participants to apply and use the latest risk assessment techniques.
    Junior to mid-level officials involved in the surveillance of the financial sector, specifically including the staff of the central bank, financial regulatory agencies, and other agencies involved in macroprudential oversight.
