About the course

This virtual learning experience offers participants insight into major geopolitical exposures, risks and dynamics that challenge our world.

Sessions detail pertinent geopolitical events and explore their impacts on banking and trading books. Participants will practically map the consequences of past risk exposures and model geopolitical risks using various assumptions about frequency, severity and exposure maps to learn how to effectively map for the future and build geopolitical risk management skills.

The course closes with two recent geopolitical cases studies for participants to interact with real-life situations and understand how to better prepare for future geopolitical scenarios.
