Webinar Details

The regulators want financial institutions to comply with their appraisal guidance. But more importantly, the regulators intend for banks to recognize and avoid situations that create risk for their specific institution. Operational risk incorporates many of the other types of risk an institution can face. There are some conditions under which a faulty appraisal program can inflate a bank's operational risk. This webinar will look closely at those situations and options to avoid them.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?

  • Banks are astute in assessing credit risk, but often underestimate the risk to the institution from lack of full compliance with the Interagency Appraisal and Evaluation Guidelines
  • Most banks are not aware that inefficient and improper linkages of the appraisal function with other departments within the institution can create an added risk to the institution
  • The big focus in banks is on credit risk, followed by market risk, but internal practices can also enhance risk to a bank's operation
  • Many banks' compliance monitoring and risk assessment processes overlook the appraisal function
  • This webinar provides context for a better understanding of operational risk and how the appraisal function may enhance or impair the soundness of an institution
