MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE OFFICIAL PRESENTATIONS

We will send you 3 emails.

The first email (704 slides) covers all the presentations that are needed for the CBiiPro Exam. All the questions of the exam are based on these slides.
 
We cover the Enhancements to the Basel II framework, July 2009, Supplemental Pillar 2 Guidance
(Supervisory Review Process) from the Bank for International Settlements

You can find the course synopsis at:
www.basel-ii-association.com/Certified_Basel_ii_Professional.htm

The second and the third emails cover the implementation of the Basel ii framework in the United States of America and the European Economic Area. There presentations are especially important for professionals working in multinational or large financial organizations.

These presentations are:

- Basel II in the United States of America (235 slides)

- Regulatory Arbitrage after Basel ii (233 slides)

- The Financial Conglomerates Directive (183 slides)

- The Capital Requirements Directive of the European Economic Area (426 slides)


The Capital Requirements Directive (CRD) is the common framework for the implementation of Basel ii in European Union. If you understand the CRD, you can work not only for the implementation of the Basel ii framework in the 30 countries of the European Economic Area, but also around the world for multinational banks and financial organizations with European operations.

The presentations not only cover the European directives, but also include topics like: Hedge Funds and the Capital Requirements Directive, Securitization and the Capital Requirements Directive.

QUESTION:
Why in a Basel ii certification program we need to understand the Financial Conglomerates Directive?

ANSWER:
Because we have a very different Basel ii implementation in each of the following structures:
A. The bank is the regulated entity at the head of the group
B. The bank is under a mixed financial holding company (MFHC)
C. The bank is under a financial holding company (FHC)
D. The bank is under an insurance holding company (IHC)

Only the first 704 slides (first email), that cover the Basel ii principles, are needed for the exam
