The third revision of the MaRisk

17. January 2011

Audit experience drives BaFin`s new revision of risk regulations

Based on international regulation and audit experience the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) published a new revision of the minimum requirements for risk management in the banking industry (MaRisk) on 15.12.2010; only one year after the last revision in 2009.

The third revision of the MaRisk enhances requirements on risk management standards in several areas, particularly with regards to:

  • Risk-taking Capability
  • Strategies
  • Internal Control Systems
  • Managing Liquidity Risks

These enhancements in risk management will have significant impact on bank`s organizational structure and existing processes.

We are looking forward to helping you to adept your risk management.
