Credit Risk Excellence in the Basel 2 Framework for Turkish Banks

The Turkish financial sector is currently undergoing a process of convergence towards the Basel II framework with a particular focus on credit risk.

On May 25th in Istanbul, Prometeia, which has been active in this area for many years, and the Turkish Risk Managers Association will discuss together with CROs, Credit Risk Managers, validation units, audit departments and all parties concerned with IRB compliance (such as CFOs, IT departments, PMOs and organisational departments) the main issues related to Basel II credit projects.

“The Turkish banking system is currently facing a transition phase, from the use of standard models to calculate RWAs to internal model adoption” says Andrea Partesotti, Prometeia’s Head of Enterprise Risk Management. “We are proud to involve the most important risk managers from the largest banks in Turkey as well as officers from European and Turkish regulators. Together they will be able to discuss the current status of projects, the roadmaps, the problems”.

The agenda will feature:

  • Speakers from international and local regulating bodies, who will discuss the current status of regulation and expected developments;
  • Speakers from top-tier international and local banks, who will discuss current credit risk practices and share experiences in running Basel II projects.
  • During the event, Prometeia’s experts will be available to illustrate the company’s business model, which combines a full range of consulting services, sophisticated software applications, implementation support and methodological training.
