23-25 April 2013 | Jakarta, Indonesia


Test your risk management decision-making instincts and learn in a highly interactive international setting

The Bank Management Games Conference is a revolutionary conference format designed to help risk management professionals in Asian commercial banks rehearse in detail the different possible scenarios they will be confronted with and prepare for better decision making skills.

The Conference is made up of three different sets of activities:

  1. Keynote speeches, presentations and onstage dialogues by industry leaders practitioners
  2. Three scenario-based simulation-based exercises with game and discussions on:
    - Capital and Liquidity Risks
    - Market and Derivatives Risks
    - Risk Appetite and Pricing
  3. Lunch and dinner presentations by industry leaders and partner organisations

The Bank Management Games is an Interactive Learning Conference

For the discussions on the three key areas, the session begins with a simulation exercise.

Each delegate is required to bring his or her own laptop. All delegates will be grouped into teams of four, where possible. The teams will be briefed on each simulation exercise and given the parameters of the bank whose balance sheet or operations they will be required to manage.

Teams will be required to enter their responses into a simulation programme, which will then be assessed by the advisors.

After the results are computed, the delegates will discuss the implementation issues they faced and the relationship with real life decisions they have to make.

The advisors will then give their overall assessment, following which there will be a general discussion on the issues.

Objectives of The Bank Management Games Conference

  • To test different economic scenarios in 2013 with peers from different countries.
  • To learn from global best practice leaders
  • As a team building exercise for your bank’s own risk management team.
  • To be mentored by a faculty of the most experienced risk experts with global and Asian experience in an experiential based learning environment.

More specifically, the programme is especially designed to sharpen the following skills:

  • Understanding capital allocation from a risk and a regulatory and management perspective
  • Understanding and implementing liquidity strategies and standards
  • Identifying inherent risk in core banking businesses
  • Discussing issues in trading and derivatives risks
  • Dealing with regulators
  • Understanding the limits of stress testing into the business model
