Introduction to Risk Based Supervision

Monday, February 25, 2019 - Friday, March 1, 2019


Risk-based supervision (RBS) is a supervisory approach that has either been implemented or is in the process of being implemented by many supervisory authorities.  In addition, RBS concepts are in line with the international standards and are part of the IMF and The World Bank’s Financial Sector Assessment Programs (FSAPs) of countries.

In today’s fast-moving and interconnected world, along with carrying out onsite and offsite activities at financial institutions, supervisors need to be forward-looking and develop plans for intervening early if a material problem surfaces at one or more of their firms. 

Toronto Centre has therefore designed this regional cross-cutting program to assist supervisors in becoming more effective and nimble in their work.  It also allows them to better allocate resources and focus them on the areas of greatest risk in their institutions and in their industry.  Each day of the program will focus on different aspects of RBS.  Training will also be provided on communication with key stakeholders, which is an essential skill to be employed in the area of risk based supervision, where a wide variety of stakeholders is involved.

Target Audience         

The program is targeted at middle-to-senior level officials from supervisory and regulatory agencies in Zambia and selected agencies from Eastern Africa. 

Medium of Instruction

The course will be conducted in English.
