Credit Risk Management: The Capital Markets Approach
Many banks in emerging economies such as Korea have shifted in recent years away from “policy lending” and towards rigorous standards of credit risk analysis including credit scoring. The Basel II requirements will reinforce this. On the other hand, these methods will prove inadequate to meet the rising challenge: that of evaluating and pricing credit risk so that loans and other assets can be sold, traded and securitized.
Market Risk Management: The Economic Exposure Approach
Financial institutions around the world have made substantial progress towards adopting consistent, mark-to-market-based methods of market risk control. However even the most sophisticated value-at-risk methods are insufficient to capture the economic and competitive exposure to currency and other market fluctuations of the bank’s corporate clients. The best banks understand their clients economic exposure and design financial products to manage the risks.

Keynote talk: “Risk Management of Financial Institutions”
Prof Ian Giddy
Theme: “Financial Institution Risk Management: The Impact of Securitization”
The rise of the asset-backed securities market in recent years has allowed banks in Korea and elsewhere to free up their capital by packaging and selling loan portfolios. This alters the criteria for lending by forcing financial institutions to meet the market’s standards for loan quality and sufficient pricing for risk. It also reduces banks’ funding mismatch. On the other hand it offers great challenges that must be faced if banks in emerging economies are to meet world standards of competition in financial services.
