Category:IFSB-FIS Workshop
Name:[EVE00271] IFSB-FIS Workshop Series (Palestine)
Description:

This 4-day Workshop is tailored for the regulatory and supervisory authorities as well as the market players in the banking sector in Palestine, and will discuss on the following IFSB Standards: 

  • IFSB-1: Guiding Principles of Risk Management for Institutions (other than Insurance Institutions) offering Islamic Financial Services (IIFS);
  • IFSB-2: Capital Adequacy Standard for IIFS;
  • GN-4: Guidance Note in Connection with the IFSB Capital Adequacy Standard: The Determination of Alpha in the Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) for IIFS; and
  • IFSB-16: Revised Guidance on Key Elements In The Supervisory Review Process of IIFS

As a background, IFSB-1: Guiding Principles of Risk Management provides a set of guidelines of best practices for establishing and implementing effective risk management in IIFS. In particular, the Standard sets out 15 principles for managing the risks inherent in Sharī`ah-compliant financial businesses.

IFSB-2: Capital Adequacy Standard is the equivalent of Pillar 1 of Basel II for IIFS. It complements the Basel capital framework by raising the specificities of IIFS that include, inter-alia, the treatment of profit-sharing investment accounts (PSIA) and measuring the risk weights of Sharī`ah-compliant products. Moreover, the Standard proposes two methods for calculating the capital adequacy ratios, namely the Standard formula as well as the supervisory discretion formula.

GN-4: Guidance Note in Connection with the IFSB Capital Adequacy Standard: The Determination of Alpha in the Capital Adequacy Ratio for IIFS, for its part provides a methodology to estimate the value of alpha to be used in the supervisory discretion formula in calculating the CAR of IIFS; and to demonstrate how to measure the Displaced Commercial Risk (DCR). 

In addition, IFSB-16: Revised Guidance on Key Elements In The Supervisory Review Process offers guidance on key elements in the supervisory review process for authorities supervising IIFS taking into consideration the specificities of the IIFS, the lessons learned from the crisis, while complementing the existing international standards on the supervisory review process, in particular those of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS).

Overall, this Workshop aims to:

  1. Enhance the participants’ understanding of the respective Standards and Guiding Principles thereby facilitating the implementation of these standards in their respective jurisdictions;
  2. Assist the participants in the practical application of issues addressed in the particular standards through case studies, hands-on exercises and other interactive tools; and
  3. Promote the sharing of experiences among the participants on the implementation of respective IFSB Standards and Guiding Principles. 

This Workshop is hosted by the Palestine Monetary Authority and participation in this Workshop is by INVITATION only. For queries, please contact the IFSB Secretariat, Mr. Ahmed Barakat at ahmed.barakat@ifsb.org.
