Seminar on prudential reporting

Date 25 October 2012

DNB will present best practices relating to reporting by banks at a seminar on 12 December.

Seminar prudentiële rapportages

DNB has screened the reliability of the liquidity and solvency reporting of nine banks as part of its theme-based study 'Better supervision through better data'. The main conclusions it has reached are that none of the banks investigated was doing everything correctly and that some of the same problems/mistakes were seen at several banks. The specific results have already been fed back to the individual institutions. Now however is a good opportunity to share the generic findings with the sector. DNB will do so on 12 December at an afternoon seminar for financial managers, controllers and (internal) auditors involved in the prudential reporting process. 

At the seminar, DNB will present best practices and common failings in reporting which it has identified through its own investigations. In addition, representatives from the banks and audit companies will give their views on the reporting process from their own professional perspective DNB will also update you on the latest developments surrounding the Capital Requirements Directive IV in the light of the reliability of prudential reporting. The seminar will end with a panel discussion on the reliability of prudential reporting based on a range of different propositions.

During the informal part of the seminar, you will have an opportunity to meet Jos Heuvelman, who took up the post of Divisional Director Banking Supervision on 1 October.
