Vizor Software to Present at the CGBS Annual Conference

Vizor, the world leader in supervisory software for Financial Regulators and Central Banks, today announced that Vizor’s Chief Innovation Officer, Joanne Horgan, will be a featured speaker at the XXXVI Annual CGBS Conference in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands, May 31st to June 2nd, 2018.

The Caribbean Group of Banking Supervisors (CGBS) was established in 1983 under the aegis of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Central Bank Governors, with the specific mandate to enhance and coordinate the harmonization of the bank supervisory practices in the English speaking Caribbean, with a view to bringing them in line with internationally accepted practices. The CGBS was later expanded to include non-CARICOM territories and has been formally accepted as a regional grouping under the Basel Committee for Banking Supervision.

The annual conference brings together regulators and policy practitioners from member countries as well as representatives from the US Department of Treasury, the International Monetary Fund, US Federal Reserve Board of Governors, and the Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI). The theme of this year’s event is “The Evolving Financial Landscape: The Supervisory Response”.

Presentation: Risk-Based Supervision: Navigating the Waters

The presentation reviews the challenges banking supervisors face when implementing a risk-based supervision approach. It outlines how existing prudential data collections can be leveraged to provide accurate and timely inputs. Ms Hogan will also compare implementation approaches from different banking supervisors and the flexibility of current systems to deal with regulator specific needs. The presentation concludes with insights on the future direction of technology and systems to support risk-based supervision initiatives.

When: 10:45 AM, Friday, June 1

Where: Ports of Call Resort, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands
