Education Seminar

Enterprise Risk Management 2013 – Northern California
Palace Hotel, San Francisco

The latest best practices for enterprise risk management and pre-examination preparation.  All the resources your bank needs to build or refine ERM!

ERM is central to addressing safety and soundness and key Dodd-Frank requirements.  Experience shows that banks can create a competitive advantage and maximize value by properly implementing and maintaining ERM.  This principle applies to banks of all sizes and ERM must be tailored to fit each institution’s unique risk profile, size and complexity. 

What do the regulators expect banks to consider when creating Enterprise Risk Management (ERM)? How can ERM create comparative advantages for your bank?  This session, presented in collaboration with the International Bankers Association of California and the National Association of Chinese American Bankers, is designed to provide a one-stop workshop which will cover key aspects of identifying, managing and monitoring risks such as credit, compliance, liquidity, market, operational, ALLL strategic and legal risks.  Expert presenters include former regulators, bankers, bank board members, bank attorneys, compensation analysts and technology providers.  


The seminar will be held October 3, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with breakfast and registration beginning at 7:30 a.m. and lunch at noon.
