About This Webinar

Due to the intermediating role banks are playing to bring relief to companies effected by the COVID-19 pandemic, both impairment provisions (IFRS9) and Capital (Basel RWA) requirements are increasing. The input variables, e.g. PD, EAD and LGD, to these models have changed and currently it is still uncertain what the values are. How do we get more certainty ensure prudent capital allocation for default risk? How can the medium to long term default risk exposure be limited?

Attending this webinar will give insight into the COVID-19 pandemic impact on banks' credit provisions and capital. We will share a pragmatic approach to get more certainty around the inputs to capital requirements for default risk.
