CASE

During our case you will experience what it’s like to be a consultant in Financial Risk Management at Zanders! As a group, you are asked to help a bank attain the highest possible return for an amount of additional funding, given the bank’s room for additional credit risk. You will be given several proposals of possible portfolios to invest in, which are put forward by the Asset Management department. The bank is subject to Basel III/CRD IV capital requirements, so you have to ensure that all capital ratio requirements are met after your investments. During the case, your consultancy skills will be tested, as you will have to speak to several representatives of the bank in order to gather and comprehend the most relevant information!
