Over the next year building societies will face new regulatory reporting requirements, ranging from FINREP templates to new PRA returns. Some come on stream 1 October 2017; others 1 January 2018. KPMG experts will guide you through this maze and help you understand your obligations and how best to meet them.
In recent years the recognised career path to mortgage underwriter has changed substantially, partly due to the changing nature of mortgage advice. This brand new intensive two-day course has been designed to fully equip underwriters with the knowledge required to carry out their role effectively.
Unlike PRA regulation, most BSA members are not regulated by the FCA on a fixed-portfolio basis, with a named supervisor and regular meetings. This gives rise to additional challenges and emphasises the importance of remaining alert to, and addressing, retail conduct risks. This seminar examines what retail conduct risk is, how it can be managed and mitigated in practice, and techniques for ensuring good relations with the FCA.
This workshop, in conjunction with EY, will focus on the corporate planning process, from how to create a successful strategy to dealing with the main challenges in the current regulatory and economic environment.
The BSA, in conjunction with ALMIS International, brings you a major full-day seminar on various current topics across liquidity, funding and treasury management for building societies and smaller banks.
This year's BSA annual payments seminar will cover a range of topical payment issues including the Revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2), ring-fencing and changes to account details, cheque imaging and more.
The objective of this course is to introduce participants to treasury management. It provides an overview of treasury operations within financial services, more specifically within building societies and within the regulatory environment. Following this there is an in-depth study of treasury operations, focusing on liquidity, wholesale funding, credit risk and financial risk.
The objective of this course is to provide participants with an overview of the financial and balance sheet risks a building society faces as a consequence of being a mortgage lender and how these risks are managed by the treasury department.
This event, run in conjunction with Deloitte, will provide relevant updates for members of risk committees and audit committees. Starting with a horizon-scan of current risks and challenges, Deloitte experts will cover key developments and hot topics in cyber and data management accounting, internal audit, conduct risk and prudential risk.
This one-day programme will give participants a framework to understand how to navigate the media. Delegates will gain practical experience of preparing for and handling broadcast interviews, including those caused by crises. At the end of the day you will communicate with more authority and personal credibility, be able to pitch your message at the right level and achieve a more successful outcome. It’s not just about media training but gaining media confidence.
This very popular annual seminar, in conjunction with KPMG LLP, provides a summary of recent changes and reminders of key requirements and explains the implications for building societies and their auditors, with presentations from specialists with extensive financial sector and building society experience.
This seminar is the latest in a long-line of BSA events on the subject. As well as taking a practical look at how our members are implementing the current requirements, this event also examines the more recent developments, including the regulatory guidance on the new duty of responsibility, the extension of some of the conduct rules to notified NEDs,and the other SMR ‘adjustments and optimisations’.
