Background and relations to other courses:

Building onto the basis laid in Financial Intermediation I, this course extends the theoretical knowledge about the existence of banks, loans and deposits to the principles of bank and risk management as well as banking regulation. Furthermore, methods for measuring and managing the principle categories of risks banks are exposed to are discussed.

Main topics and learning objectives:

The course starts by discussing principle objectives of individual banks. It moves on by introducing the regulatory framework banks have to follow nationally and internationally. Embedded into this regulatory context, methods for precisely measuring the magnitude of liquidity, default, market and operational risk are presented. The primary purpose of this course is to provide students with a profound knowledge of bank management and regulation. They learn about the importance of risk measurement and management and to apply their knowledge about the methods discussed within exercises.
