Our mission

The Deloitte Banking Risk Lab is an initiative by Deloitte Malta to organise a series of events, workshops and training sessions for risk professionals in the banking sector.

Over the last few years bank regulatory requirements have increased significantly as part of the European Commission’s (EC) initiative to create a sounder financial sector in response to the credit crisis and recession of the late 2000’s. As part of the EC initiative the Banking Union was set-up to improve the level of banking supervision, under which the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM) and Single Resolution Mechanism (SRM) have been established.

As of January 1st 2016, SSM’s latest supervisory framework does not apply only to the systemic banks but to all lenders in EU and it is not only focused on capital and liquidity but more importantly to governance and overall business model and profitability.

Our mission statement is to facilitate a technical platform for risk professionals in the sector to receive training, views from international peers and regulators and exchange insights with other professionals.
