Creating an Effective ICAAP

You are looking at one of our in-house courses. Many of our in-house programmes are also available as open courses on specific dates. Click here to see our open course calendar.

Outline & Objectives

Regulators expect investment firms to treat their Individual Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (ICAAP) as a risk management tool to inform business decisions and not merely a compliance exercise.

This practical course will help those attending understand the core ICAAP requirements and how to pull them together to create an effective ICAAP that is more than just a “box-ticking” exercise. It will also help delegates understand what to expect from a Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process (SREP) and how to manage the process effectively.

The programme will benefit Compliance, Operational Risk and Internal Audit prrofessionals in regulated investment firms subject to the demands of the production, maintenance and review of an ICAAP document, as well as senior Finance and Chief Operating Officers who are involved in the production of the ICAAP and need to understand its place in the control and governance framework.

Attending will help you:

  1. Understand the central role the ICAAP is intended to play in the Board’s strategic thinking and risk management activity
  2. Review the regulatory requirements applicable to the content
  3. Examine the practical problems in creating an ICAAP and how to overcome them
  4. Develop strategies for risk assessment
  5. Appreciate the role of stress testing
  6. Construct an appropriate winding-up plan and guidance
  7. Prepare for a SREP
