Benchmarking Best Practices in Capital and Risk Management among International Financial Institutions

The Situation

An international financial institution wanted to assess best practices in capital adequacy and risk management among four multilateral development institutions: IBRD, IDA, IFC, and EBRD.

NERA's Role

NERA assessed the methodologies used to set capital requirements on the basis of risk in the context of the overall risk management framework at each institution. We then drew together a best practice benchmark.

The Result

NERA's client was able to develop risk-based capital adequacy and risk management policies and practices.
