Inflation: do risk managers remember the 1980s?

09:10 - 09:45

Soaring prices are an old problem in a new age. Policymakers have signalled they are willing to tolerate an unemployment surge in their bid to bring inflation down, but pandemic lockdowns in China and war in Ukraine create inflationary pressure that central banks will struggle to control. Hiking rates too far, too fast could also threaten the vast piles of debt that have built up during years of rock-bottom rates. This cocktail of conflicting pressures has to be tackled by risk managers who have never seen sustained high inflation.  

  • The path of inflation, the path of rates – what should we expect?  
  • Inflation’s knock-on effects: consumer spending, corporate default risk, market liquidity, market volatility
  • How to educate and equip a risk function to cope with a very old - and brand new - set of risks 
  • Tools, tips and tricks for measuring and managing inflation risk

Climate – responding to a new era of risk

11:45 - 12:30

Climate change has had a profound impact on Financial Institutions and has quickly moved from what seemed like a sometimes obtuse, academic debate to a profound political, economic and societal global issue. For FIs, the exposure to climate risk is potentially enormous, so it’s crucial to understand how these growing risks should be managed and measured, and importantly, how can we seize the opportunities beginning to emerge from the shift to a lower-carbon economy.

Join us, as we discuss how we can best identify and respond to the complex risk posed by climate change in light of persistent uncertainty and change.

  • How can core risks to business be identified and controlled? 
  • Integrating climate risk into credit risk modelling
  • How are regulatory pressures changing?
  • What are the advances in modelling and integration of risk?
