The Certified Bank Performance Specialist is a specialty program for banking professionals who are concerned with the measurement and control of bank performance. This highly interactive course aims to improve the financial awareness of those who seek to generate superior shareholder returns.
Banking is a highly competitive activity and bank management is under increasing pressure to improve their performance. The recent financial crisis and consequent bail-outs of financial institutions and general market volatility has placed renewed focus on how banks judge themselves and their industry peers from the perspective of performance and risk.
At the same time, the types of risks facing banks are constantly evolving and need to be managed in a way to protect shareholders from downside events. This program addresses these issues in a way which involves all managers in contributing to successful performance.
The concepts and approach operate at both a technical and at a strategic level. The aim is to sensitize managers to the identifying opportunities while identifying and assessing the risks that arise in pursuit of those same opportunities. This program is highly interactive and case study driven.
- Practical understanding and knowledge of how to read and interpret bank financial statements
- Developing a set of performance metrics relevant to banks
