Basel & ICAAP – Topic Guide

Under Pillar 2 of the second Basel accord, a bank must have an Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (ICAAP) in place. ICAAP consists of internal procedures and systems that ensure that the bank will possess adequate capital resources in the long term to cover all of its material risks.

It involves the determination of economic capital as opposed to regulatory capital and is a process that is run in parallel to the regulatory capital requirement determination process. Economic capital is the capital required to cover all risks that is estimated using internal risk models of the bank. ICAAP should be an integral part of the bank’s processes and must be embedded within the organization. Senior management and the Board of Directors (BOD) should be supportive and fully engaged in the process.

The Basel Committee has recently published the liquidity portion of the Basel III reforms to the capital and liquidity framework which aims to resolve the weaknesses and fill in the loopholes of the current Basel II framework that became apparent in the recent financial crisis. Basel III would require the banking sector to maintain and monitor two key minimum funding liquidity standards as part of the supervisory/ regulatory approach to managing liquidity risk. This would be in addition to the supervisory assessments that regulators would be required to undertake to review whether liquidity risk management frameworks set up by the banks are consistent and in line with published basic principles of liquidity risk management.

    I have attended a number of training courses conducted by Alchemy technologies. Broadly, the areas covered have been Financial Risk Management aspects, Basel II implementation in Pakistan, as well as product knowledge for relatively new products in the our market for instance Financial Derivatives. As trainers, Mr. Jawwad Farid and his team bring in a wealth of conceptual knowledge entwined with their own professional experiences, adapting and honing it to our local market needs. The training courses are very informative and are delivered in a witty and energetic manner. The learning needs of the participants are kept in focus, and they are kept involved by interactive discussions and queries. Personally, I have always left these sessions with a much better understanding and grasp over the subjects delivered, which has helped me professionally.”
