A Moody’s Workshop: Financial Institutions Ahead of the Curve—An Integrated Approach to Growth

In-person | Fairmont Royal York, Toronto, ON, Canada

Please note registration will close 24 hours prior to the start of the event.


How are forward-thinking financial institutions leaders setting new goals and priorities in the face of three competing themes:
  • An ever-evolving landscape of regulations
  • Turning fragmented risk management solutions into a holistic risk management framework
  • Incorporation of emergent risk (including climate risk) in the credit decisioning process
  • Join us for an afternoon of discussion with Moody’s experts and your peers (followed by a social hour) in downtown Toronto.

    Across four sessions, we will explore evolution in process, tools, and approaches to risk management, and emerging needs for regulatory compliance.
  • We will discuss competitive transformation that continues despite the banking dislocation—pulling forward back-office insights to focus sales on the right opportunities, targeting experts where they add maximum value, and delivering a distinctive customer experience.
  • Perpetual KYC (pKYC), it’s the buzz word, but can it be achieved – explore how pKYC enables automation, portfolio monitoring and utilizing technology to reduce manual efforts on mundane tasks.
  • We will also dive in on emerging climate risk - OSFI’s Guideline B-15 for climate risk management and disclosure and how your teams can incorporate scenario analysis approaches and tools to strengthen your risk analysis and compliance planning and activities.
  • Registration is complimentary.

      Setting a Solid Climate Risk Foundation

      Early efforts to incorporate climate assessments into risk management frameworks might naturally focus on minimizing losses or satisfying regulatory requirements, but an eye should be kept on how these efforts might also identify new opportunities for growth and value creation. With this in mind, we will provide a view of emerging trends and how industry leaders are adding climate capabilities while maintaining efficiency and flexibility.
