Treasury management in the banking sector is constantly changing and posing new challenges. This certificate course focuses on how to stay ahead of the curve in terms of best practices and current and emerging possibilities in the arena of bank treasury in the GCC countries. Attendees will gain an understanding of topics encompassing foreign exchange, money markets, securities markets, derivatives, liquidity management and all aspects of treasury risk management (including credit risk, market risk and operational risk). In the aftermath of the 2008 global financial crisis regulators and other supervisory authorities have placed a greater emphasis on regulatory oversight and compliance.
The course will examine the effects of these changes on bank treasury operations with particular reference to the GCC countries. As this is a certified course, those attending will be tested to assess their comprehension of the subject matter. The trainees will be asked to undertake brief case studies and to complete a multiple-choice test on the final day of the course.
