Banks are competing for the most attractive risk-return trade-off. Thus, like in other industries, return controlling is important. In contrast to other industries, risk controlling is at least as important as return controlling. This seminar looks at both controlling dimensions, their particularities, challenges, and implementations. Central concepts are how to measure return and risk of individual products and business lines. After having looked at risk and return separately, both dimensions are reunited in the risk-adjusted performance measures RAROC and RORAC. Finally, we present an Excel-model that allows for forward-looking controlling/ planning of banks’ four key resources: Capital, Liquidity, Earnings, and Risk. This CLEaR – framework is Aspect’s established planning methodology.
